Ubeans are a extremely nutritious, hardy, and productive bean species. Milled with corn and rye, they are baked into salty breads providing the staple food of the lands.Vines and pods are a pale green, but the beans themselves are vibrantly varicolored.

They are also roasted and ground with roots of chicory or dandelion to be brewed into hot coffee. (True coffee is known in the lands, but it is a luxury traded by the Xichalta at astounding cost.) Blended, powdered, and strained, they yield a milky beverage or a solid curd.

The plants of the beans are great boon to farmers as well - their roots revitalize soil, and the stalks can be plowed under as green manure or harvested as nutritious forage.
