Product description

The Seed Exchange - This bean’s longtime steward—Stephen Deane of Wayne, Maine—described it as “the finest variety of large, white baking bean that anyone here has ever had.” Ideal for baking and making soup, the kidney-shaped bean (developed by Stephen’s Uncle Bert) has a mild flavor as well as a light, “fluffy” texture and cooks quickly. Plants reach 1-1.5' tall and mature mid-season; each pod has 4-5 seeds and measures 5-6" long when fully expanded. Bush habit, dry. 80 days to dry beans. Organic.
