Potawatomi Pole Bean

potawatomi-pole-2I picked up the seed for this variety at the Fall Harvest Festival (Fall 2015) put on by the Jijak Foundation in Hopkins Michigan. The Jijak Foundation is a project of the Gun Lake Band of Potawatomi Indians.

These lima beans are delicious eaten as a shelling bean or as a dry bean. The vines were very vigorous and loaded with dry pods by the end of August. The vines were disease free even during an extremely wet, hot and humid summer. It is wonderful to find a bean so well adapted to the north and with historical roots in the north!
