Pretzel bean (Vigna unguiculata ‘Pretzel Bean’) is a twining vine with cream-colored to pale purple flowers that develop into curiously curled pods, which are edible but tough while green. The pods mature to yellow and dry to tan. At this stage, you can harvest and eat the dried seeds (pretzel beans are a type of cowpea or black-eyed pea) or use the pods for decoration. This edible ornamental is great for kids’ gardens! Full sun. Annual.
Harvested in 2020. At least 10 seeds.
