1021 Phaseolus vulgaris
(Bush—DRY) 100 days.
A true Acadian legend! In 1755, Acadians deported from the Bay of Fundy purposely grounded their ships along the shores of Clare County. Survivors hid deep in the woods, living with the Mi’kmaw, lost to the ruling British. Acadians found this bean in the gullet of a downed goose that fall, then saved and planted the seed the next spring. It has been grown by locals ever since. 6-7 seeds/pod, easy to shell and sweet.
