The drumstick bean is a green, bean-like fruit of the horseradish tree which really looks like a drumstick, being a long stick-like pod. The pod is a delicacy used in fish stews or mixed vegeetable dishes. Both pods and leaves are relished. The flavour of the pods has been compared with peppery asparagus and they have the texture of marrow. The outer pod is not edible and the beans only when young.
