Hyacinth beans are ornamental bean pods that grow on short green bush plant shape. When young the pods are deep purple to maroon on their exterior and a bright, vivid green on the inside. Once fully mature, bean pods will turn dark green and the interior beans will take on a darker green hue.
Seasons/Availability : Hyacinth beans are available late summer through the early fall months. When immature the beans are malleable and flattened, like sugar snap peas and once mature the beans double in size and stretch the pods. Immature Hyacinth beans are edible, though they may not taste as good as most other beans. Once mature the beans contain cyanogenic glucosides, antimicrobial agents the plant produces that create a bitter taste and if not cooked properly can be toxic
