Excellent legume groundcover for orchards, Pinto forms a thick, luxuriant mat 20-30 cm deep, with attractive yellow pea flowers; it suits frost-free areas and is moderately tolerant of shade. Will control weeds, soil erosion and also fix nitrogen in the soil building soil fertility. Guinea fowls love foraging for the nutritious peanuts.
