Greasy Grits Bean

         
 
3 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 

Pole, 90 days. A popular old Appalachian and Mountain folk heirloom that used to be common in much of the Midwest and South, but now is very rare. It gets the name because its pods are smoother and shinier than other beans, giving it a “greasy” appearance. Pods are harvested small and used like other green beans, or you can allow to dry for a brown soup bean that is easy to shell. Highly productive vines.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? tiny bit tougher than others

Review:

Just a few plants have yielded loads of beans! They are shorter and flatter than some varieties, and the skin is a tiny bit tougher, but overall a great pole bean! Taste great, and still can't get over how much they are producing...

What are the pros? Easy to grow, but hard to find

What are the cons? None

Review:

These bean are like the ones my grandmother would buy from side-of-the-road farmstands in upper east TN when I was a little girl. I have searched and searched for them! They are the best of both worlds with a tender pod and flavorful bean. I have never seen them in the farmer's markets in middle Tennesse. They are easy to grow (need to be trellised) and very prolific. They do have to be strung. If you find you have grown mire than you can eat, they are excellent blanched and then frozen. I have only a 4x8 garden space that has beans on three sides of the box. In week 7 after planting, I have already picked 6 lbs of beans! Give them a try, you will be glad you did!
