Produced on the farm, this half climber is perfectly suited for the Haudenosaunee 3 sisters garden and was gifted to us by Stephen McComber (Silverbear Arts) from Kahnawake. Really good in cornbread and chilis.
Sow: Direct seed after last frost
Harvest: After 90 days and the bean is brown and dry
A great cornbread bean that grows very easily, a bush bean but can be semi vining, looking for something to hold to. Alot of pods on the plant, so much so that they get heavy and can fall down. I had to stake them to ensure that they did not fall over. These beans go well in salads, chili and soup. Very versatile and tasty, creamier than a kidney bean.
