What are Beans?
     Eze 4:9. The Eastern plant ordinarily thus known (Vieia faba) is quite unlike the garden or field bean of the United States. It is of the same family, but is an erect annual with a stout stem, is one of the commonest field-crops of Europe and the Orient, and bears in its pods large coarse seeds which are fed to animals and much eaten by the poorer classes. Kidney-beans are now sometimes cultivated in Palestine.
