Kebarika Dry Bush Bean

In Stock

70 to 90 days — 'Kebarika' is typically ready for fresh eating at about seventy days, and although it is commonly classified as a snap or string bean, the fresh eating period is very short. Allowed to remain on their productive, sturdy, erect plants to mature, their six-inch long pods each yield five to six beautiful, creamy-textured, flavorful dry beans. Well adapted for different growing conditions, 'Kebarika' thrives in Northern gardens just as well as it does when growing under hot, drought conditions.

Introduced to us in 2004 by an early benefactor of the Victory Seed Company and is part of a special project in his memory. At the onset of his end-of-life failing health, bean variety conservationist, and horticultural bibliophile, the late Mark Futterman had the foresight to find homes for his life's work. (You can read more about the story and about his awesome donation to our horticultural library by clicking here.)

The documented history of this variety is incomplete. What we know at this point is that first began circulating among gardeners with its introduction in the 1985 edition of the Seed Savers Exchange Yearbook but has only been offered commercially on a very limited basis. It reportedly originated in Kenya, Africa but we have not yet discovered how and when it arrived on this continent. Very rare and in limited supply. Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 45 seeds.
