Broad bean is a delicious seasonal vegetable in late spring and early summer. It is grown in various parts of our country and is an important food, vegetable and fertilizer crop. In the Jiangnan area, I like to eat beans during the Lixia season. A lot of fresh broad beans are on the market around Lixia. Almost every family eats broad beans, so the broad beans are also called Lixia beans.
