A lima bean variety that originated in Central America but has been bred in parts of East Africa and South Africa and is commonly used as a cover crop. If grown along the ground, it produces a 60 cm high mat of foliage that smothers weeds.  It can also be trellised for easier seed harvest. The seeds are large, with distinctive red caps atop the seeds.
