Delectable diversity! A feast for our eyes as well as bellies, Coming Dawn is delicious as they look. Scrumptious abundance cascades tender, stringless beans of deep burgundy and shimmering plum as well as emerald green, brilliant yellow and purple-striped beauties, each pod curling ever so slightly at the bottom, so darling! The flowers are as diverse as the pods, blooming violet and cream, much to the delight of your resident hummingbirds. We appreciate each juicy-crisp pod, though there’s a sweetness and lusciously velvet crunch to the violet beans, with their yellow-wax centers, that is unlike any other bean we’ve ever tasted. Once you know, you know.
We are grateful for Cornell University sharing with us such scrumptious beans (Banafsaji, Wardeh, and Asfar to be exact!) and are humbled to remember and uplift untold generations of brilliant indigenous humxns co-adapting with beans across time immemorial here on Turtle Island, as well. We ‘save’ these seeds to share with you and we hope you will, too! As well as (y)our great-great-great grandchildren.
