Makes the best black bean soup this side of Jamaica. Delicious ingredient for black beans and rice topped with guacamole. This variety is used a lot in Latin American and Caribbean cuisine. Vigorous bush-type plants set a heavy load of pods with 7 to 8 beans per pod. Young pods are crisp and tender as snap beans when picked real early, but this is mainly a shell bean. Cooked beans make a nice addition to homemade salsa.
