Magic Beans
are rare and powerful items that were grown by giants and nymphs. They are translucent and look like they are made of glass, and they are used to create portals and travel to different realms. They are featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time.


Magic Beans are pod vegetables that can be used to cross realms, even between magical worlds and non-magical worlds. They can be used as a transport to any place desired by only thinking where one wants to go. ("Snow Drifts", "The Price of Magic")

If the bean is old, it loses its power. However, the waters of Lake Nostos can restore withered magic beans to their former ripe state. ("Tallahassee", "Queen of Hearts")
