Ram's Horn Bean

1 Review | Write a Review
This unique antique has a super cool growing habit that has amused American gardeners for hundreds of years! Sometimes called the pretzel bean due to the pods' habit of curling into a tight coil. The Rams Horn was mentioned in Henderson's handbook of plants in 1881. The gorgeous lavender colored flowers and curly “rams horn” growing habit of the bean pods makes this a great candidate for the ornamental edible landscape!

What are the pros? Hearty and resistant...

What are the cons? None


This bean has been in my family for generations. For years I searched for its name. It is a fodder bean from early pioneer times. Our people talked of planting it with the corn and after harvest, using the bean vine and huge leaves for cattle fodder. It is resistant to every problem...matures in 60 days and is delicious...tastes like almonds. The bean can be harvested early and canned, of left to dry on the vine and taken in as 'leather breeches in the fall. At one time, I found seeds that had been in my freezer for over 10 years and they germinated as well as others.
