HeritageHarvestSeed a écrit :Mennonite K Triple A (pre-1890)
A special thanks to Betty A. Keeler for sending me this wonderful variety. This rare heirloom bean has been in Betty’s family for more than four generations. Betty’s great grandmother, Katherine Thiessen came to Canada from Southern Russian near the Black Sea area in 1890 at the age of 14. She grew them near Winkler, MB for many years and her oldest daughter Anne married in 1914 and moved to Springfield, SK where she grew them for many years. Betty’s mother Annie continued to grow them for several years and gave Betty some in the 1970’s. Betty has been growing them ever since and continues to make baked beans in the same bean pot that her great grandmother Katherine used! Betty named these beans for her great-grandmother Katherine and 3 generations of Anne’s in her family who are of Mennonite heritage. These beans are extremely productive and early, one of my earliest varieties to dry on the plant. Great for short season areas.

HeritageHarvestSeed a écrit :Canadian Wonder (pre 1873)
A genuine heirloom originating in Canada sometime prior to 1873. According to the book; "Beans of New York (1931)", it was also known as Red Canada, Rose and Summer’s Canadian Wonder. Unfortunately, this bean has become extremely rare in North America and I actually had to obtain my original seed stock from England. The seed is red similar to a kidney bean and is best used in any dish requiring kidney beans. The green pods may be used as a snap if picked young. EXTREMELY RARE.
Days to Maturity: 95 days for dry beans
