Fukuruyu Chanaga Semi-Runner Bean Seeds


An heirloom bean with a murky history as far as I can tell, but it dates to gardening publications as far back as 1973. Fukuryu means ‘crouching dragon’, and I’d guess it may have Japanese connections somewhere along the line. I found a horticultural document from the Tokachi Agricultural Experiment Station describing this bean as belonging to the ‘Chunaga-uzura’ group and that there are other related varieties – ‘Fuku-uzura’ being one. It was a productive variety that matured fairly early. Seeds are medium to large in size and light beige with maroon flecks. As far as I know this bean is for dry use.¬†¬†Gratefully received from the wonderful collection of Russ Crow, Woodstock, Illinois.
