Bean – Skunk pole bean

R30.00 incl VAT

This variety is from Peak Week Pods. JC Terblanche says: ‘This is very good-looking pole bean. Skunk beans have been grown by the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) people for many generations in North America. Each bean is uniquely mottled black and white. The name is self-explanatory once you see the bean up close. The vines like a taller trellis and can easily reach 2 m high. The green pods are edible when young, but I believe there are better varieties for that purpose. Skunk beans are best used as a dry bean and have a good size turning half a cup of dry beans into a well-sized portion.’
