Good Mother Stallard Pole Bean Seeds


A wonderful American heirloom bean that was saved from possible extinction by the remarkable efforts of Mr. John Withee of Lynfield, Massachusetts. Mr. Withee set about collecting heirloom beans from in and around the area he lived and in doing so was given a bean by Carrie Belle Stallard of Wise Country, Virginia. He named the bean after her. This bean is believed to have been grown in American gardens in the 1930’s. Lovely round beans are marbled and flecked with burgundy and white markings. This was historically used as a shelly bean, the seeds collected at mid-maturity and then cooked. A wonderful variety from a man considered to be one of the greatest heroes in the heritage seed saving movement, long before it was in vogue.
