Whipple Bush Dry Bean
This large seeded mottled red bean has been the star of many winter soups around the farm and around the Island as we try to get more folks on board to grow their own dry beans. I love this variety as it will reliably dry down in time to harvest before the late September rains come. Large bean seeds can be trickier and Whipple does a great job year after year. Original seed from Adaptive Seeds-a great source for Open Pollinated seed great for NW growers.
Plant in Early May when soil has warmed and harvest dry pods in September when the plants have turned brown. 85 days to maturity
Packet contains ~ 40 seeds
