(Phaseolus vulgaris) The Hutterites
are a communal
branch of Anabaptists who follow the
teachings of Jakob Hutter. This is one of their
heirloom beans, which makes an excellent
creamy white soup. Green-yellow seeds with
a distinctive dark ring around the eye. Very
productive plants. SSE member Dorothy
Beiswenger obtained the seed from a
Hutterite Colony in Forest River, North
Dakota. Bush habit, dry, 85-90 days.
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors after danger
of frost has passed and soil and air temperatures have warmed. Harvest
dry beans when the pods are completely mature and dry.
± 1,400 seeds/lb
