Lupinus mutabilis – an annual cultivated in the Andes since ancient times. Read more in Lost Crops of the Incas…my summer is too short and cold for them to mature outside, but I’ve grown a few in my old cold greenhouse… I prefer not to have a greenhouse now and only grow hardy crops, so I won’t be trying again until someone selects a more cold-hardy variety :) They are also sometimes grown as ornamentals and I grew a variety called Sunrise once. Others I’ve tried are K’ayra and var. cruickshankii
