Can anyone help with information about Flamingo Beans? Are they best eaten as a snap, shell, or dry bean?
I received a few seeds through a round robin bean trade. I've found a bit of info here at GW that indicates it was developed by tormato/Gary and is a selection of a natural cross of Jeminez with blazing pink, wide, flat, long pods.
So far that description is a great match for the ones growing on my tepee. The plants are growing well and are loaded with pods. The pods have developed more and more pink as they mature. They really stand out amongst the foliage. I'm planning on eating a few at various stages to see which I prefer, but I'm letting most grow for seed. They are beautiful, and I plan to grow them in a more visible location next year.
