Berta Telaska Pole Bean Seeds


A European heirloom from Portugal, brought to Canada over 50 years ago by a fellow named Berta Telaska. It can be used at any stage of growth, and it’s a big bean in both pod size as well as bean seed size. This is a truly awesome bean, in many respects. It is resilient to bad weather, dries down early, is huge and can be used in all kinds of ways. I was very surprised how early it was able to dry down given it’s size. Vines were quite vigorous. Seeds are a gorgeous dark burgundy with golden flecks. Lovely. It doesn’t seem to be in many of the seed catalogues so I can’t help but wonder if this is yet another bean that is teetering on the edge of obscurity.
