This is the less-commonly grown white-flowered form. Young pods are cooked and eaten like green beans. Young leaves are eaten raw in salads and older leaves are cooked like spinach. Flowers are eaten raw or steamed. The large starchy root tubers can be boiled or baked. Lablab bean is an excellent nitrogen fixer and is sometimes grown as a cover crop.
