Source: Magness et al. 1971

This is a bush bean, with an erect plant, 1 to 2 feet high. Pods are small and cylindrical. Seeds are small and variously colored - commonly red, oblong to nearly round, often with flat ends.

They are cultivated in Asian countries, but rarely in the U.S. Seeds are used as dry beans. Culture and exposure of edible parts are similar to dry or field beans.
