Discover the Benefits of Hyacinth Beans

Hyacinth bean, scientifically known as Lablab purpureus, is a species of bean belonging to the family Fabaceae. It is widely cultivated as a food crop in tropical areas like Indonesia, India, and some parts of Africa. These plants are climbers, making them a popular choice as screen on a fence or trellis, an ornate structure specifically designed to support climbing plants. In some parts of Africa, it is considered a traditional food because of its nutritional benefits and ability to promote food security and foster development in rural communities. The hyacinth bean thrives in well-drained compost soil under full sun exposure.
