Moderately productive greasy bean from the Dingess Family of Chapmanville, West Virginia. Seeds of cut-short beans typically grow so tightly in pods that the mature seeds tend to have flat ends. This is also a greasy bean meaning that the pods have a glossy look when they reach 3-3.5″.
Pods can be harvested at leathery stage when they are full of plump seeds and de-stringed to be boiled or cooked in other ways. This is an exceptionally meaty and flavorful bean. Pods are green when young. 75-80 days from seed to harvest. Originally from seed saver Frank Barnett’s collection.
Our current seed stock was grown by farmer Evan Morgan of New Roots Community Farm in Fayetteville, WV.
Packet has min. 25 seeds
