Re: Mucuna bean
- A Christian anti-hunger organization, echonet.org, sells seeds (for US
$). Spain is drier than the areas of Central America that need green
manure crops to maintain fertility, so I can't guarrantee success but
it is worth a try. Mucuna has been used, post-treatment, as a famine
food but "pruriens" means "causes itchiness," and there is some toxity
so I wouldn't eat it, myself, for medicine or food.

of a good source for these beans, I thought that you might be
interested in the attached leaflet which gives information on the
medicinal uses of the beans.
