Lekatt Beans

This is a bush dry soup bean bred by Ruurd Walrecht in Sweden. I obtained my seed from Petr Vorbil in the Czech Republic. The plants are a small upright bush type which matures early (85 days). This bean is very rare and the only specific reference online is from Russel Crow’s  “A Bean Collector’s Window”.


Russel states “Bush/Dry A variety from Sweden bred by Ruurd Walrecht an early advocate and apostle of heritage varieties in the Netherlands who now lives in Sweden. The beans name means Stoat or Ermine. The weasel like animal native to Europe, Asia and North America. This beans parentage is Wieringer (a bean similar to Molasses Face) and Prairie Appaloosa (a bean that looks like Zuni Shalako).”
