Succotash Bean

         
 
2 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
A rare, ancient bean from the Narragansett Indian tribe of Rhode Island. This uniquely shaped, dime sized bean closely resembles a kernel of corn. This variety was used for succotash-- the iconic indigenous northeastern dish of corn and beans that historians believe was served at the first Thanksgiving. This bean is ideal for the North, particularly on the coast.

What are the pros? Beautiful blossoms, vigorous

What are the cons? shoulda planted more

Review:

What a bean! Fast-growing, vigorous vines. I clocked one at 8" in a single day. Beautiful purple flowers that bumblebees absolutely love. A friend thought theywere violets, lol. Only 2 flowers per stem, so be sure to plant plenty of seeds (I only did four vines, silly). However it is only july and the vines are over 7 feet now, with no sign of stopping. Have picked a dozen or so beans for snacking so far and plenty more on the way. Definitely will be growing more next year!

What are the pros? Fast grower, great germination

What are the cons? nothing yet

Review:

Just got them started, but they are taking off fast! The weather has been cold and rainy. I planted them in my raised beds, mid June, when night time temps finally reached 50 degrees F. They are about 1 foot tall now. I'm impressed with their vigor! Will have to wait and see how they do later on.
