Amberique-bean

Curious about amberique?  Me too.  But the only references to that name I've found are people's first names in arrest records.  So we will call it wild, although as you see here it could be fuzzy.  Wild bean was used as food and medicine by Indians, and is now grown for food in the Phillipines.  Like many flowers in the bean family, it changes color with age, as shown here in an upright image.
