HEIRLOOM We are humbled and grateful to offer this extraordinary bean that has grown here in the Finger Lakes of New York for centuries before Colombus arrived. Our indigenous Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) ancestors have selected, saved and shared these beans for untold generations and indeed they are our first dry beans to mature in our short seasons as well as our most productive dry bean, by far. Delicious and beautiful, Haudenosaunee Skunk is a perfect choice for a three sisters' garden with any dry corn and vining winter squash.

5 of 5 Very prolific! October 23, 2019
Reviewer: Wingit from Calais, ME  
Despite planting late due to a cold wet spring, these beans had no trouble taking off!  They easily grew over my cattle panel trellis in the garden.  They seem flatter than other dry beans.  Is this normal?  I can't wait to try them!  They had on average 7 beans per pod.

5 of 5 Prolific! January 26, 2019
Reviewer: Candace from Buffalo, NY  
I had great success with this variety. I grew them in my front garden bed, right below an open window. The beans grew all over the open window, which had to stay open until the first harvest! We saved three quarts worth of dried beans and have been enjoying the meaty, tender textured bean in the colds months. Recommended.

5 of 5 Vigorous, Beautiful Bean January 6, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Western Massachusetts & near Albany New York  
What an amazing bean this is!  I have a big of a thing for dry beans, and the Haudenosaunee Skunk Pole Bean stands out.  I mean...look at her!  All I need to do is tuck her at the base of some corn or a trellis and she shoots up and has huge and yummy yields.  Definitely recommended for folks in the Northeast.  

I'd love more information about the history of this particular bean, as well, as much of the story of native seeds has been obscured, even as the seeds continue to be grown.
