Five to six-inch pods yield kidney shaped, bright emerald green dry beans and are delicious
in soups or eaten as a green bean. 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 bring good fertility to
the soil, as well as to the people. Great for a trellis or small fence. Pole to semi-pole bean
brought to us by Stephen Smith from his colorful bean collection.
