Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Young pods can be sliced or used whole. Always cook hyacinth beans well before eating.
Warning: Hyacinth beans naturally have cyanogenic glucoside(a plant compound that contains sugar and produces cyanide.) Humans or animals should never eat raw hyacinth beans. Always cook hyacinth beans well before eating because heat alters the cyanogenic glucosides.
