Description

Heritage Status: Overseas

Bio-Region of Origin: Great Barrier

Number of Seeds: 25

Description: Climber, green snap, shellout, dry bean that has been in the Koanga Institute Collection since day one (1986). This was one of the original beans handed to me by a keen seed saver who wanted to pass his collection on. He gave me all his seeds and I poured the bean seeds on the floor to have a look at them and that was that. Bean seeds are well known to be addictive, how can you let these go forever. The beans are a kidney shape and flat, either black and White or Red and White, they have always been mixed, with saddle like coloured patches. They are great eaten as you would dried beans.

 

Planting Instructions: Scatter into seed trays and transplant at 10 cm spacing under trellis as soon as second leaves appear. This avoids problems with birds, slugs, snails and rotting in the cold ground.
