70 days — Although its exact history is lost to time, this old family heirloom is named after the pioneering family who settled here in Oregon's Willamette Valley in the mid-19th century and who raised this bean. Outside the local area, it has remained relatively unknown.
It is a dry bean and has an excellent, very rich, cooking flavor. The seeds are a pretty purplish-red with little white spots.
Very rare and in limited supply. Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 40 seeds.
