Foodies enjoy multiflora beans as well-cooked shellys and dry beans. Chocolate's young, small pods (4-5 inches) are hearty fresh beans and its starchy tuberous roots are a delicacy. A tall, sturdy trellis is required for this vigorous climber. Its gorgeous bi-color red and rose blooms are irresistible to hummingbirds.
