Italian heirloom; white kidney bean great for traditional

minestrone soup.  Productive plants proformed well in our

fields.  Easy to grow, fun to harvest, great winter activity

threshing and eating beans!

 

 

Jacob’s Cattle

Popular Maine heirloom originally from the Passamaquody tribe.

Vigorous plants produce abundant cluster of bean pods and when

allowed to rippen/dry on the plant, yield beautiful kidney shaped

white beans with deep red cattle-like markings. 

Great bake bean for bean-hole-beans, soups, and chili.

Classic bean for traditional Maine baked beans.  Fairly round,

exquisite tan bean with a very small white eye where they connect

to their podMarfax cook up plump and have a very creamy texture.

Beautiful deep purple-black beans are small-medium sized.

into prolific  clusters of pods with 5-6 beans per pod on average.

White kidney bean with dark maroon soldier figure for an eye.

Cannellini on Fire

An heirloom I discovered from some cannelini that I saved one year

and have been growing for a few years.  The parents are Cannellini

and tongue of fire.  The crossed one year and I loved the way they

looked some much that I grew them out for two years and found

they're really beautiful!

 

 

 

 

 

Soy Beans Glycine max

 

Envy

90 days 

High yeilding, excellent for early edamame or to grow out for tofu. 

Beans are green and medium sized and are my personal favorite for

edamame (boil pods whole for a few minute strain and salt.  Eat them

as a snack holding stem bite whole pod and pull it out of your mouth

catching the beans on your teeth as you remove the pods.  The salt mixes

with the beans in your mouth and the result is a unique experience!).

 

 

Black Pearl 

85 days

Plants are productive with loads of pods each bearing 3-4 medium sized

matte black soy beans.  Black soybeans have a richer flavor then green

soybeans and are great for edamame, tofu, and tempeh.
