Description: These are small, reddish-brown beans, rounded in shape with a point at one end. They have a strong, nutty, sweet flavor, and are much used in the macrobiotic diet, because as Eunice Farmilant says in Macrobiotic Cooking they are "the most yang of Beans". They probably originate from China, and are imported from China and Thailand where they are harvested in November and December. In the Orient, adzuki beans are usually cooked to a red soft consistency and served with such ingredients as coconut milk. They are also cooked with rice, their bright color tinting the rice an attractive pink, as in the Japanese, Red-cooked Festival Rice. In the East it's also common to find, adzuki beans sweetened with sugar and made into cakes and sweetmeats. USDA Zones: 3b - 11 Maturity: 9 to 12 weeks Sun: Full sun to partial shade, requires sun for growth, but may be in shared for 25% of the day. Water: Adequate moisture is especially important from flower bud formation to pod set. Too much or too little water, or excessive heat, causes blossom and pod drop. Provide bean plants with 1 inch of water per week. Extremes in soil moisture can also lead to malformed pods in which only the first few seeds develop, leaving the rest of the bean pod shriveled. Water early in the morning to allow plants to dry quickly
