Turkey Craw

Phaseolus vulgaris

HEIRLOOM Stringless 3 1/2 - 4" long pods with excellent fresh flavor. In folklore, this variety was cultivated when a hunter shot a turkey and removed a bean from the craw. The bean was planted and saved, hence the the name 'Turkey Craw'.

Pole beans are a space saving wonder for the compact garden. The long vines take advantage of vertical space and have a continual harvest throughout the growing season so they have higher yields per square foot than bush beans. For many people, the flavor is beyond compare as well.
