Vermont Cranberry Bush Bean


Grown on the farm, this heirloom (1800) bush bean from Maine has its roots probably in Abenaki communities.  The seeds were shared with us from Stephen McComber who came to our farm this summer and helped us learn about it’s rich history.  It was a mega producer for us, and we were able to get 2 litres of beans out of it and only planted 45 plants.
