Phaseolus vulgaris

30 seeds/pack  |  65 days  |  Heirloom

Hearty soup bean with a crisp pod also suitable for fresh eating. Medium vining pole prefers trellis but will also climb plants nearby such as corn and sunflowers. Expect a heavy yield; time and time again we are stunned by their productivity. We think this bean is a 'must-plant' for those attempting to grow their own protein. This local Heirloom has been cultivated and saved in Northern CA on the Epperson Family Farm. While the original name has been lost, they now call it Missouri Bill’s Bean because Bill from Missouri gave it to them nearly 40 years ago! Compare to pinto.
