The small green pods of the pretzel bean taste deliciously walnutty, and the plants are highly productive.
This unusual cowpea happens to be quite practical, especially for small gardens because it grows as a twining vine. It is easy to train on poles or a trellis, taking advantage of vertical, rather than horizontal, space.
Does well in drought and poor soils. Hardy, abundant plant.
While it is best known for it's odd pretzel-like shape, it's a delicious tasting bean.
