Bean, Mbombo Green

91% of 100

Pole. 50-60 Days. Bright emerald green dry beans are delicious in soups or eaten as a green bean. 5- to 6- inch pods yield kidney-shaped beans in the most dazzling gemstone colors of the plant kingdom. Drought and heat tolerant, the bean originated in Kenya where its name, Mbombo, is an African tribal association to the Creator God of the same name. The bean is thought to be a sign of prosperity and brings good fertility to the soil. Great for a trellis or small fence. This pole to semi-pole bean is brought to us by Stephen Smith from his colorful bean collection.
