Description

These giant swordbeans are one of the coolest things to grow, the colour the size of the pods, all of it!

I have a couple of seeds to share, they are not germination tested but I harvested them maybe two months ago. I also didn’t eat them so far but I will plant heaps of them next year!

They are a short-lived perennial vine, dying down during winter (at least in Port Stephens).  If you want to eat them the fresh beans have to be peeled (not a huge job because they are big). The seeds need to be boiled thoroughly. Giant swordbeans have also various medicinal uses. 

Sow in mid-spring, soak as any other bean.

Once I’ll use them I’ll keep you updated! (Just in case you wonder the blue bowl is glazed with “cash blue” from John Britt, fired to cone 10 reduction)
