Bean, Bush Dry, 'Rockwell'

*Ark of Taste Heirloom*
An heirloom from the Coupeville area of Central Whidbey Island in WA, it is named after the late 1800’s pioneer Elisha Rockwell who brought it to the area. Though it never became a commercial crop, the bean has remained popular in homestead gardens for well over a century, renowned for its ability to germinate in cool soil, its early maturity, and outstanding flavor. The beans are creamy-white with a mottled burgundy spot around the hilum and are great for most dishes but are especially known for making terrific baked beans. Our seed stock came from the folks at Willowood Farm in Coupeville who are working to popularize this local treasure. A first-rate, productive dry bean for our maritime climate. Very rare and recently boarded on the Slowfood USA Ark.
