Bean, Bush Snap 'Tanya's Pink Pod'


Truly a remarkable bean in growing habit, taste, and appearance. Large (6”), flat and wonderfully tasty pods of a uniquely beautiful iridescent hot pink color that remind us quite a bit of magentaspreen. The bushy plants are very productive over a long period. You need not fret if you miss the fresh eating stage as they also make a tasty cooked dry bean. Discovered as a sport in the garden of Salt Spring Seeds owner, Dan Jason, by his then apprentice, Tanya, over a decade ago, this bean has grown true ever since. Many thanks to Dan for sharing this one with us!
