Fort Portal Jade

Fort Portal Jade

Once while on an expedition to western Uganda, I came upon a bag of jade-green beans in the Fort Portal Market. The event made my heart flutter! I was to introduce bean collectors the world over to this wonder and proudly gave it the name “Fort Portal Jade Bean.”” (Joseph Simcox, Types of Beans: A Poor Man’s Jewels, August 16, 2016.) 2
