Phaseolus vulgaris

HEIRLOOM This Oregon heirloom produces perhaps the most beautiful of all dry beans, with a striped or marbled finish. These small-sized beans are excellent for baking and soups. Hardy, very productive bush-type plants. Disease resistant and easy to grow.

In truth, any bean can be left on the plant until the pod and seeds are dry and then later cooked up for eating. This particular selection of beans are varieties that have exceptional taste, texture, and history specifically as drying beans intended for long term storage. Without dried beans, options for protein during the lean months, after the fall harvest and before next yearÂ’s crop has matured, would be scarce. Thanks to them, many populations have made it through the winter. Nutrients: dietary fiber, protein, vitamins A and C and riboflavin.
