Saving the Endangered Sword Bean

Lesson: Let's help preserve threatened and endangered species. The backyard is a good place to multiply these species that have become rare because of abuse or neglect.

Sword Bean has long disappeared from the backyard. It used to be a popular succulent vegetable with the young pod sliced thinly, cooked as salad, with meat or fish, or in bulanglang, and other recipes. These seeds shown in the photo have been germinated with the hope of saving this endangered plant.
