Pine Mountain Greasy Bean

25 Seeds

$ 3.49

(Phaseolus vulgaris) An Appalachian heirloom originating from eastern Kentucky, Pine Mountain Greasy is the earliest of the greasy beans we offer.  Tall, pole-type plants produce excellent, early yields of 5" long green beans .  If you're not familiar with greasy beans, they are plump, shiny hulled snap beans that are typically harvested after the pods have begun to swell, but before the beans inside have lost their immature green color. One of our customers described their fondness of greasy beans in this way, "Well, I guess I just like to have a little bean in my green beans, not just an empty hull."  Having now tried them ourselves, we understand the sentiment.  Greasy beans are essentially a twofer, green beans and dry beans in one.  The plump, immature beans make them more satisfying and it seems like they help them hold onto more flavor too.  They do need to have their strings removed, but as most gardeners know, anything worthwhile takes time.  We've tried cooking them the Southern way, slowly simmered in stock with bacon, some onion, salt and pepper and this summer even took them camping and cooked them in foil packs mixed with onion, olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Both were amazing!  Thanks to our Southern customers for sharing this local secret.  We're definitely glad we tried them. 60 days to harvest.  25 seeds per packet.

CULTURE: After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds 4-6" apart, 1" deep in rows 24-36" apart.  Plants require trellising.  Under ideal conditions, germination will occur in 7-10 days.  For highest yield, harvest regularly.  Avoid touching plants while leaves are wet as this can spread disease.
