I usually send at least 50 bean seeds in a sample. I am flexible. If you want more than 50 seeds I think I could increase the size. However, my supply of seeds of the bean might not e large enough to send a big sample. This bean has done well for me and is a cut short type of the kind that is traditionally dried to make shuck beans or leather birches. I usually harvest it young to eat as a string bean. You can eat it when it is older as a shelly bean and you wouldn't need to shell it out. The pod with the shelly beans is tender so you can eat it long with large green bean seed inside the pod.

35 is fine we are very small and will gladly grow a row out and save for seed cooking, let you know what we do with it! Regards!

Where to mail the $8?

Oh I'll print an order form out and list all the varieties and send one check to you I guess.. right?
