Attractive legume with unusual royal purple flowers that grows 3-18 m in height. Its flowers hang in long clusters. The plant also produces clusters of pods which contain seeds known as mucuna beans. The seed pods are covered with reddish-orange hairs that are readily dislodged and can cause intense irritation to the skin. The species name "pruriens" (from the Latin, "itching sensation") refers to the results to be had from contact with the seed pod hairs. The beans are also called Nescafe, and are used as a coffee substitute. Mucuna has been used for generations in India for Parkinsons disease. It is used to make dopamine, an important brain chemical involved in mood, sexuality, and movement. The plant has antioxidant properties. In Central America, velvet beans have been roasted and ground to make a coffee substitute for decades; its goes by the common name of "nescafé" in these regions, as well as in Brazil, for this reason. It is still grown as a food crop by the Ketchi indigenous people in Guatemala; the bean is cooked as a vegetable. It is considered a diuretic, nerve tonic, and aphrodisiac. Externally it is applied to ulcers.

This is a high-climbing woody vine species native to rain forests of Central and South America. The vine produces pods which contain several beans that are extremely buoyant and well adapted for ocean dispersal. Known to beachcombers around the world and commonly called "sea beans", they drift on the world's oceans and often wash ashore on the beaches of distant continents and tropical islands. This one is the most common species of sea bean that washes ashore on beaches of the southeastern United States. It is easy to grow from seeds and is easily cared in the garden or landscape just needs sunlight and space. The long, rope-like stalk hangs below the forest canopy where night-flying bats can easily access the fragrant blossoms. The name Brown Hamburger Bean is because of the beautiful seeds (looking like little hamburgers) that are often collected and polished by natives and made into lovely necklaces, bracelets and other handicraft items.

The seeds are poisonous and contain L-DOPA and other potentially toxic substances.
