Beans


Here you will find an array of bush and pole beans; green, yellow, purple and red podded beans as well as streaked podded beans; wide and narrow podded beans; beans used for fresh eating pod and all, fresh eating shell beans, and/or dry beans; and beans that are actually quite different from the regular Phaseolus vulgaris bean but still have some similarities (fava beans, soy beans, etc).
