Growing Practices:

Latin Name: Mucuna pruriens

Days to Maturity: 90+


I grow these for soil remediation, to suppress weeds, and as green manure. They also produce a high quality forage for animals. This variety is a non-itch type with at least two seed phenotypes. They do not seem to be day-length sensitive and often produce beans at around 90s days. In some countries the filled green pods are boiled whole and eaten like green peanuts. Care must be taken in cooking due to high concentration of L-dopa.

Growing Tips:

Soaking seeds beforehand for two days can help with quicker germination but is not necessary. Drought tolerant but grows explosively with rain. Tolerates a wide range of soils.
