(yin/yang bean) Pole bean, a South American heirloom that grows very well in temperate gardens. A vigorous climber that gets off to a fast start and finishes very early. Vines are somewhat sparsely leaved yet very prolifically fruited–a few beans planted in rich soil under a good trellis in full sun will produce a surprisingly large amount of beanage! Pods straight, pointed, flattened, edible as a green bean (not stringy), maturing to a lovely ivory color, usually containing 3 to 5 seeds each. Seeds are egg shaped, mottled maroon and white in a beany yin/yang pattern), very easy to dehusk to produce the clean dry bean, which cooks up fast. Mild flavored, these are good in soups and as refrieds.
