Description
Tobacco Patch Bean Certified Naturally Grown Seed
100 days — Similar in appearance to the New England heirloom 'Soldier' bean.  The plants reach eighteen to twenty four inches in height, are sturdy and erect, and do a good job keeping the four inch pods off of the ground.  We do see a small percentage of short runners occurring but it is minimal and the plants do not require support.

This Southern classic was sent to us by Melody Rose of Kentucky.  Once quite common in the area, the local farm cooperative lost the last of their growers in about 2000.  Melody wrote, "My beans came from Mr. Harold Wayne Moss of Murray, Kentucky. He and his friend Jimmy Outland have been growing these beans for years. (They share a garden on Harold Wayne's farm)  They like the beans so much because they cook up so quickly. They don't even bother to soak them overnight. You can talk to many older folks in this area and all fondly recall 'Tobacco Patch' beans. Our local feed 'n seed which is a Southern States store, even sells them if they can get a local grower to share seeds. Some years they aren't available and when they are, they sell out long before there's even a chance of planting (if you don't get them by March, you don't get them)."

We started trialing it here in 2004 and although our supply is very limited, we are offering it for the first time for the 2013 gardening season.  Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 50 seeds.

Everyone that tried a dish of these little gems loved them.
I planted these along the south side of the house where it gets really hot. These held up to the high temps just fine. As a dried bean, these were great. Everyone that tried a dish of these little gems loved them ... I've got multiple people asking for seeds now.

VSC Notes:Thank you for the review. Please let everyone know where they can find seeds ;) We appreciate your word-of-mouth recommendations. Our seed variety preservation work, that is, the ability to keep old varieties like this available to home gardeners, is directly supported by orders! ~Mike
