How often do you read the words edible perennial nitrogen fixing plant in the same sentence? After two years of trials, we are ready to offer a new plant this year. Phaseolus polystachios, or Perennial Wild Bean. A small relative of the common bean, native to the northeast US. It can be cooked and eaten like other beans. The plant will produce a fair amount of lentil sized beans if many plants are established and the pods harvested in year three. It can grow in some shade, or along a woodland edge.
