Magic Beans by iPlant and the Message Beans from Wishing Fish give you an original and eco-friendly way to say something to your special someone. These growing messages laser-etch words, images or phrases onto the side of a bean. When the bean sprouts within a week or two, your message is shown clearly.

Both message bean sets come packaged in a container with soil, but they can be replanted into the ground or a larger container if desired.

Implications - The legumes are unlike any other that you are likely to see out on the market: the beans reveal a message when they sprout. You could have your own in less than two weeks.
