Phaseolus vulgaris


Shaped like tiny pink peas, this super-rare heirloom pole bean from Germany was developed by the Teutonic Knights during the 1700s. The order was dissolved by Napoleon in 1809, and the bean was first mentioned commercially in 1841. Ideal for small kitchen gardens, the 6 to 8 foot vines are very compact and narrow, with pods in clusters of 3 to 4. There are usually 5 to 6 seeds per pod. Very productive and early to set pods, so this is a perfect heirloom for short season areas. 


~25 seeds per packet.
