This beautiful African heirloom from Burkina Faso, West Africa laughs at the heat and poor soils, and produces plentifully in drought or wet conditions. Red seeds, a bit larger than average, taste great as dry beans. Alternatively, you can eat the young pods as green beans, and cook up the leaves like spinach. On top of all this, as a vigorous legume, these plants will give nitrogen back to your soils.
West Africa is where this species is most widely grown, and is likely where this species was first domesticated. From there, it has traveled the world nourishing the African diaspora and beyond.
