Lovingly grown with multiferous, exuberant worms in Armidale since 2012 without any artificial fertilisers or pesticides. Untreated, Non-GMO, Non-Hybrid & Open Pollinated

Number of Seeds: 60 at least
Very Fast Growing and Resilient
Prolific Climbers, Generous in Crop Size

Prolific growers in a large range of soil conditions. They grow equally well in good sized pots! Fresh beans are medium in size, green and you just can’t get enough when lightly steamed. Delightful! 

When the dried bean seeds are germinated and cooked, they just melt in your mouth. To get these seeds just leave beans on the vine to dry out naturally, then pick.

If you live in Armidale, NSW, Australia, you can pick these seeds up directly from Jodie's FOOD SHED and save on the freight. Just near Altitude coffee roastery and Café

The regal and versitile Pinto

Beautiful white flowers attract bees and other insects.

Gorgeous seeds

Our beans can grow up to 3-4 metres tall. We use iron construction mesh to support their growth.

The fresh beans can be eaten raw (and I often do) or steamed to accompany any meal. Absolutely delectable.

The seeds swell in size when germinated. Cook for about an hour or until they melt in your mouth. Great in Mexican dishes. Scrumptious.

Soil temperature of 18C is ideal for planting bean seed directly into the soil
