(Snap Beans=70 days; Dried Beans=90 days) Productive pole-type plants yield 4-5 inch long beans that can be left on the vine to dry for soups. This old-fashioned Appalachian heirloom was restored within recent years and is continuing to gain popularity. The shiny and sleek bean pods resemble a greasy surface. When dried, the beautiful cream colored seeds are covered with coffee brown speckles. The nutty, rich flavor of the dried seeds makes this a premier soup bean. Try this hard to find heirloom today!
