DESCRIPTION

You can’t get snake bitten with these favorite Southern beauties! From the distinctive purple swirls on the tender dark green flattish 7-8”L pods to the motley brown splashes on the buff-colored seeds (which is where the name was derived), this bean is exceptional. Equally flavorful whether harvested fresh or dried. Keep them picked and they will produce the entire season. Vigorous vines, growing to 10’L, are drought resistant, yet, perform well in hot humid southeast. Canning, Freezing, Fresh Markets, Home Gardens.

* Nitrogen-fixer in the soil - chop up plant and work it back into the soil

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.

HEIRLOOM

This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
