Product Description


Scientific Name:  Mucuna holtonii.   Common names: 'Sea Bean',  'black horse eye bean'This is beautiful jet-black bean that grows on a high-climbing woody vine.  Native to Mexico, Belize and all of Central America, and the northern part of South America.  The vine produces pods which contain several beans that are extremely buoyant and well adapted for ocean dispersal.  Known to beachcombers around the world and commonly called "sea beans", they drift on the world's oceans and often wash ashore on the beaches of distant continents and tropical islands.  These are beautiful seeds and are often collected and polished by natives and made into lovely necklaces, bracelets and other handicraft items. This one is the most common species of sea bean that washes ashore on beaches of the southeastern United States. It is easy to grow from seeds and is easily cared in the garden or landscape; just needs sunlight and space. 

This item is a special wholesale packet of one thousand (1,100) Mucuna holtonii seeds, to be delivered upon receipt of payment. Note that the buyer pays $14.95 postage & handling.
