The Moth Bean is a discrete bean from South West Asia that has been cultivated for centuries. Far from being humble fair, this little bean contains a lot of nutrients and impressive amounts of protein. A super food for the future, Moth beans thrive in hot dry areas where most beans would fail. Because of this they are wonderful for desert gardeners. They are soil builders and planting these in eroded areas and degraded areas is an excellent annual cover crop. The small lentil like beans cook up nice and are delicious.
