Heirloom New England shelling bean dating back to the 1700's, unmatched for quality, reliability and hardiness. Perhaps the most attractive of all dried beans. Sweet, succulelnt beans can be used fresh (60 days) or dried (85 days). Brightly colored, red mottled, 6 in. long pods, cover vigorous, upright, bush-type plants. Pods open easily and yield 5 to 6 medium-sized, oval beans, light cranberry-colored and mottled with a dark burgundy.
