Purple Kingsessing Bean

1 Review | Write a Review
Exclusive listing with Baker Creek! This one of the oldest documented Native American beans in the Roughwood Seed Collection. The name comes from the Lenape language and refers to an area now part of the city of Philadelphia that was once a Swedish settlement in the 1600s. The 6 to 8 foot vines produce an abundance of purple podded beans with violet-brown seeds. This is believed to have been a ceremonial bean used by native peoples in stews as well as a source of bean flour. Its meaty flavor is enhanced when combined with wild mushrooms or venison.

What are the pros? Large production Quality taste

What are the cons? Slow grow in colder climate


Bought on a whim to spruce up the color in the pantry. They grew quite well in the colder british weather. They spread quite a lot so they need ample support. Taste amazing when cooked.
