HEIRLOOM Rare and unusual, we first fell in love with this bean as a handful of seeds: rich mocha brown and chocolate-speckled silver to black-spotted lavender cream to glossy jet black. The tall, vigorous vines have huge heart-shaped leaves and when they bloom we again swoon.

Organic Chocolate Runner Pole Dry Bean HEIRLOOM Rare and unusual, we first fell in love with this bean as a handful of seeds: rich mocha brown and chocolate-speckled silver to black-spotted lavender cream to glossy jet black. The tall, vigorous vines have huge heart-shaped leaves and when they bloom we again swoon: each flower is both scarlet and rose, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds to their glory. The small snap beans (4 inches or less) are tender and sweet but quickly turn fibrous as they swell to 8+ inch pods full of beautiful dry beans. What do we do with our dry beans? We eat some, we make splendid necklaces with little friends and we save plenty to give to friends and replant ourselves for next season.

Fantastic dried beans November 14, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Geneseo, NY United States  
These are the most gorgeous speckled beans I've ever seen -- rich browns, purples, grays, whites. Large pods were easy to shell by hand. Each bean is a tender mouthful. A bag of these home-grown beans makes a lovely, distinctive gift.

Beautiful bean October 23, 2016
Reviewer: Tom Eickenberg from Liberty, ME United States  
Excellent looking bean, due to being planted in a new area of the garden and a cold June here, it got off to a slow start, They were visited by Hummingbirds and many Bumble bees so a very good fruit set, I am currently harvesting it for dry beans. Will grow again
