Phaseolus vulgaris

Annual plant, open pollinated.

Pole bean. Dry bean.

Extremely rare variety. 

This bean is said to have originated with the Iroquois. The seeds are flat and lima bean shaped. These beans are quite resilient, great for our short climate, and are delicious in soups. This plant is an incredible climber - reminiscent of Jack and the giant beanstalk - a little magical. 

Days to maturity: 90 for dry.

25 seeds per pack. 

Seed starting:

For bush beans, pole beans and runner beans. 

Direct seed in your garden once all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Beans do not tolerate frost. Early June is when we plant around here. Sow seed about 1” deep. Darker coloured seeds tend to germinate better in cooler soils. 

Pole beans and runner beans need something to climb!
