Guaje pods are thin, flat and approximately a foot long in length. Their smooth yet tough skin is green to red in color and slightly translucent allowing the seeds inside to show as spots along the length of the pod. Used primarily for the seeds inside, the seeds are considered freshest when they are green and tender. As the seeds age they become dry, more firm, and change from green to a brown hue. The seeds of the Guaje can be used fresh but are most commonly used dried or roasted.
