Broad Bean - El Beano - Nevile Sinclair
Details pure white flowers. The pods enclose beans that are SWEET, and which remain GREEN once cooked. Try raw. These broad beans are my own selection, from possibly a random mutation, over 35 years ago. That original, pure white- flowered specimen caught my eye. I much preferred the flavour and colour of its beans, over others. I think you will, too. Kids love them raw,and as such they are wonderful in salads. In colder parts of the South Island and Inland North Island you dont want to sow broad beans between March and and early May if plants are over 10cm tall, heavy frosts will damage or kill. Plants under this size handle frosts well. CURRENTLY BEEN GROWN AND SHOULD BE AVAILABLE FEB 2018Botanical name Vicia FabaPrice per packet $3.00Packet contents 30
Between 1838 and 1839 the Cherokee people of the United States were forced to march across the Smoky Mountains to Oklahoma. This winter death march is known as the Trail of Tears as over 4,000 people died making the trip.
In 1977 a member of Seed Savers Exchange named Dr. John Wyche from Hugo, Oklahoma donated these seeds to our collection. It is thought that his Cherokee ancestors carried this heirloom bean with them on the Trail of Tears.
Beans were domesticated in the Americas thousands of years ago and serve as a protein in the diet of humans and animals.
Growing this bean takes about 55 days to produce a purple podded green bean and 90 days to dry beans. This is a vigorous climber that we enjoy very much as a fresh green bean and have found to be highly productive. Botanical name Phaseolus vulgarisPrice per packet $3.00Packet contents 30
