Starlite Bush Bean Seeds


I grew these beans in 2023 as a preservation effort because they were on an endangered list.  It’s an old Australian variety. I received 5 seeds, and grew 4 plants. Luck was with me, because the beans performed extremely well and I was able to get a very good crop from my small number of plants. They barely climbed, but they did have a single twirl around their centre pole so I’m listing them as a semi runner rather than a bush, but the habit was closer to a bush for me than the usual twining semi-runner. Seeds are pure white, very shiny, medium sized and roundish. Given my small sample I didn’t dare try them fresh yet, so I can’t speak to their usage outside of use as a dry bean for now – but I suspect they may be a green snap bean. A variety that is truly teetering on the brink. If you’re interested in helping to resuscitate this seed variety I can send 20 seeds, fresh from the 2023 season. I’d love to hear feedback about this bean. Rare.  2023 seed.  Gratefully received from the wonderful collection of Russ Crow, Woodstock, Illinois.
