An old French Canadian heirloom originally from the Cantin family of Quebec where it was grown for generations. The mustard colored seeds are used for delicious baked beans. Similar to Worchester Indian (Old Canada Bush Bean) which is one of the oldest types of beans except for the intense coloration of the seed. An early bean that dries beautifully on the plant and is easy to shell.
This green pea is ideal for drying, requires a tutor since it can reach 3 to 4 feet in height. Its white flowers give a subtle soft color to the garden that will produce beautiful green pods. Rare and hard to find. Is considered to be on the verge of extinction. “(Source Potager d’Antan)
