A bushy or climbing plant, this herbaceous annual can reach 4 meters in height and produces flat oblong pods that are 5-12 cm long, containing 2-4 smooth, flat, somewhat kidney-shaped seeds with rounded ends. There are many different sizes, some of which are 6 mm (1/4") thick. They are usually quite large. Solid-colored or speckled, they're found in every color, though cream or green are the most common.
