Fort Portal Jade Bean

79% of 100

Pole. 65 Days. Amazing jewel-toned green beauties! Dried beans are a glassy blue-green color—stunning and unlike anything we have seen before! Plants are extremely productive. They flourished both in the greenhouse and outdoors in the Baker Creek gardens. The color does not fully develop until the beans are completely dried. Introduced several years ago by our Canadian friends at Richters Seeds and collected by Joseph Simcox in a market in Fort Portal, Uganda.
