Bean, Greasy Grits

96% of 100

This old Appalachian and mountain folk heirloom used to be common in much of the Midwest and South. The Greasy Grits bean has recently been rediscovered and is highly sought after and celebrated by foodies, chefs, and nostalgic gardeners alike. A signature smooth, shiny sheen to the bean pods earned them the name “greasy,” but the superior nutty, mellow, umami flavor is what keeps Greasy Grits the king of Appalachian heirloom beans. Pole bean matures in 90 days for dried beans.
