Stands autumn rains well. Resistant to mold. Caution: Do Not eat Kidney Beans raw or as sprouts. Raw Kidney Beans and Kidney Bean sprouts contain lectin, a glycoprotein that can bind to sugars in membranes, causing changes in the membrane that lead to agglutination (clumping of cells) and mitosis (cell division). In the digestive tract, they bind to intestinal cells and block absorption, causing nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea lasting about 4 hours, after ingesting as little 4 raw Kidney Beans. The Kidney Bean lectin (hemagglutinin) is destroyed by thorough boiling for 10 minutes, after which water should be discarded and replaced before cooking, whether simmering or cooking in a slow cooker/crock pot.
