Very flavorful greasy bean from Haywood County, NC. Greasy beans typically lack the fuzz of commonly known bean varieties and have glossy skin. Pink-tip Greasy pods develop pink tips on flower end when mature. Plants have pole habit and are very productive. Traditionally used to make leather britches in Appalachia.

Our current seed stock was grown by Neha Lal and Marlin Dehoff of Mockingbird Hill Farm.

Packet has 20 seeds

    These seeds did really well in my growing environment (Lexington, KY) – I was able to save numerous seeds from this variety.

    After a three season search for Appalachian pink tip seeds I was excited by heavy pod and bean production, but disappointed it was not the most flavorful local pink tip I was hoping for. With a pale yellow and slightly pink tipped pod, it was a round white bean with less flavor than what I’d wanted. A hearty soup bean I enjoyed, just not what I was expecting.
