Gross Brother's Vermont Cranberry Certified Naturally Grown Seed
65 to 85 days — The seeds are buff and heavily mottled with cranberry coloring. 'Gross Brother's Vermont Cranberry' beans can be used fresh as green beans when young, or allowed to mature to be used dried. There are four to five seeds per five inch pod. The plants are upright, sturdy, and do not require support.

'Gross Brother's Vermont Cranberry' bean is an heirloom variety that was sent to us in 2003 by a gardening friend in Vermont name Sharon Zecchinelli. She received it some years prior from and older gardener in her community named Hugh Gross, who along with his brother David, had been growing it for many years in the short gardening season of the Cold Hollow Mountain region near Enosburgh, Vermont. Both Hugh and David have passed away, but their bean lives on thanks to Sharon.

We began increasing our seed stock from the original sample received and were able to introduce this variety in 2007. Each packet contains one ounce, which is about 55 seeds.

Very rare and in limited supply.
