Beans in space

Dear Battlestar Galactica fans:

Do legumes play any role in this show?

(I swear, this is not a totally gratuitous question. It was, oddly enough, inspired by a work of historiography I am currently reading. But, not having seen the series, I don't know if history might constitute any hint of spoiler in this case. Or perhaps there are no beans.)

The list on the BSG Wiki, Life Forms of the 12 Colonies, mentions beans. Helo says in the episode The Hand of God "You hungry? I don't know, what do we got? Peanut butter... baked beans, corn. How about some chili?"

How useful you are to know the right resources to find!

So yes: but not in any major or terribly symbolic ways. (I've been reading about Cylon, the historical figure who may have killed Pythagoras. The story involves P going around a field of beans since they were holy, and C. and his followers trampling the beans to kill P.)
