Greasy Grits Bean

         
 
15 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
Old Appalachian and mountain folk heirloom that 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 among 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.

What are the pros? These are heavy producers

What are the cons? None

Review:

I've grown these for five years now, not for green beans, but for dried beans. They're delicious, and cook up fairly quickly in a pressure cooker. Pods are loaded and could fall under the category of cut short as well. They're prolific, and the vines are vigorous. Might look up Bill Best from Berea, KY. He's dedicated himself to preserving beans of the southern Appalachians. So glad to see these are here at Baker Creek!

What are the pros? Best bean by far

What are the cons? None

Review:

My mother (80 yrs.), and my wife (59 yrs.), were both raised eating homegrown greasy grits. I can't express how much I appreciate your company making these available! I purchased these for my mom and wife. Great seed and easy to raise. Small bean so somewhat slow to pick. But, oh so worth it! Best tasting bean I've ever eaten. I intend to purchase and raise much more next year.
