Bean, Bush Dry, 'Calypso '

Known for their distinctive black and white markings, these beauties set abundant fruit and finish even in the late and cool growing seasons we “sometimes” experience in the PNW. With 4-6 seeds per pod, you’ll be rewarded with steaming pots of chili and soup just when the weather begins to turn the corner from Fall into Winter. Creamy and rich with a flavor slightly reminiscent of your favorite potato they will retain their shape while black markings will fade to brown when cooked. Can also be eaten in the green stage but the dry beans are most certainly worth waiting for!
