Vigorous climbing bean that can reach 12 feet. Soft green pods, sweet and slightly flattened bean. Very productive. Usually grown for its dry, beige grain streaked with chocolate veins, but can be eaten fresh as well. Climbs so high that our stakes could not resist and fell at the end of the season, under the weight of the plants. Originally cultivated by the Iroquois First Nations of Kahnawake (Quebec). One of the finest beans in our collection.
Apios americana (Rosary Potato) (Apios americana)
10.00 $ 10.00 $ 10.0 CAD
** CANNOT BE SHIPPED OUTSIDE OF CANADA **

KEEP REFRIGERATED FROM RECEIVING TO PLANTING!
Perennial climbing plant native to Quebec. It belongs to the legume family. It is suitable for banks and shores, but also for cultivated gardens. With its very fragrant flowers, it is reminiscent of wisteria. It is also called tuberous glycine. Its other name, wild bean, refers to the edible bean produced (in a favorable climate) by its flowers. Its tubers, also edible, are connected to each other by a vine root, hence its name of potato in a string. It was widely consumed by First Nations. Nowadays, it is not uncommon to see it growing on the site of former Native American villages. Very nutritious (it contains up to 18% protein, three times more than potatoes), it can be eaten boiled or fried. On the other hand, the peel contains latex, so it must be peeled.

*Note Rare people may be indisposed by consumption
Package 8 tubers of small size.
Germination rate 100%

For spring orders, plant in pots until you have access to the ground and can transplant them outside. Each tuber can germinate and give a plant. Cut the rosary into as many parts as it contains tubers. Place each tuber in a flat position, about 5-6 cm deep, much like you would a potato. (However, the Apios does not cut into several pieces like the latter).
You can mulch lightly, the stem will pass through a mulch. Stake.

After two weeks, a frail stem will emerge from the ground. It will roll up like a bean.
Harvest in the fall. When the leaves are dry, dig up the tubers with a pitchfork. A single tuber will give two to three “chains”.
You will have to dig a little further than where you planted. Put a single tuber back in the same place in anticipation of next year's harvest. Mulch. Apios americana is very resistant to Quebec winters.

Taste the rest. Be sure to peel and boil or fry well before eating, as the peel contains latex, which can cause stomach bloating.
True Red Cranberry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Climbing bean to be shelled. Variety from the Abenaki First Nations and part of the Slow Food Ark of Taste. The beans, when dry, are a fiery red making them look like a cranberry. White hilt. Rich flavor. Rare variety having been rediscovered by bean collector John Withee, who got it from Mr. Taylor of Steep Falls, Maine, after 11 years of research. He had read the description in an encyclopedia dating back to the 1700s. In 1981, John Withee donated his collection of 1,186 beans to the Seed Savers Exchange (USA). This variety appeared in several eastern New England catalogs in the 1850s, including one from Montreal, dated 1899, which listed this variety as very popular.

Mennonite bean (Phaseolus vulgaris 'Mennonite')
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Very vigorous climbing green bean producing beautiful purple mauve flowers as well as very long striped green pods which are delicious eaten fresh. When dry, the beans are striped gray on a pale background. Note that the bean hilum is not located in the center of the bean, since it is not symmetrical. It therefore gives the impression of having been slightly crushed once dry. The Semences du patrimoine organization lists this variety as being very rare. Probably come from the Mennonites of the region of Waterloo in Ontario.

Rocquencourt Butter Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris var. nana 'Beurre de Rocquencourt)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Dwarf bean Beurre de Rocquencourt (Phaseolus vulgaris). Golden yellow bean with long, thin pods. Very good productivity and stability. Originally from France and previously from Algeria. The more you pick, the more it produces, over a long period of time. Its advantage lies in the ability of its pods to remain tender for several days on the plant. So advantageous for traveling gardeners or market gardeners too busy to pick their beans every day. The seeds are elongated, deep black. One of the tastiest in our collection. Beans of this type were introduced to France around the 1840s under the name Haricot d'Alger, because they supposedly originated in Algeria. From this genetic pool of black-seed beans, the French developed other varieties including butters from Rocquencourt, a town near Versailles.

Avoid handling or removing weeds when the beans are wet to avoid the proliferation of diseases. With us, it is very resistant to diseases and very little watered, since it is mulched throughout the summer. When the seedlings have started to sprout, ensure that the plants do not lack water until the first true leaves appear.

Dutch Princess bean (Phaseolus vulgaris var. nana 'Dutch Princess')
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Dwarf green bean with small, round, sweet pods. A delight! This variety was found on a seed exchange table at a Seed Festival in Frelighsburg, Quebec, in 2013. It has a name that seems old, and is not listed by seed saving organizations in the Canada or the United States. Limited quantities. VERY RARE. Anyone who can provide us with information on where it comes from would be appreciated as this is one of our best beans! Addendum In November 2016 we found a trace of a Duch Princesse bean in the "New-Zeland Journal of Crop and Horticultural Science /Experimental Agriculture" of March 1978. The origin of the bean named Duch Princess is believed to be Holland. He was also named by the seed company William Damn Seeds who would sell an improved variety from a Duch Princess bean. We find another trace of it in a research center in... Tanzania, in Arusha, (Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT)) in 1972.

MAINTENANCE AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
Avoid handling or removing weeds when the beans are wet to prevent the spread of disease. When the seedlings have started to sprout, ensure that the plants do not lack water until the first true leaves appear.

Venus Teton Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Venus Teton')
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Italian red tomato. Original heart shape with a beautiful tip which, it seems, inspired its name. Very dense flesh, excellent for sauces and sandwiches. Its resistance to diseases and the abundance of its fruits compensate for its late production. I would recommend it for market gardeners, because it handles well (no pun intended) and keeps for a long time. One of our top three!

MAINTENANCE AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
Gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions about 10 days before planting by taking them out during the day. Lay the plants horizontally, slightly arching the plant to bring the leaves out.
Perennial Onion (Allium cepa)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
The perennial onion is very practical in the garden. Low maintenance, it grows producing an onion tiller of about 10 or 12 onions the size of a leek. It is edible in its entirety, not just the leaves! It flowers very early in the garden, and you can separate the tiller with a shovel to transplant it to other places. It does not keep well indoors but overwinters outdoors well covered with dead leaves. Several varieties of perennial onions are available on the market, our lineage comes from Ferme Miracle.

Wait for autumn to consume.

MAINTENANCE AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
Leave a foot with a few onions in the ground, so the following year you will have a small "grove" of onions.
Lovage (Levisticum officinalis)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Lovage is an aromatic and medicinal perennial from the Apiaceae family. Its taste is somewhat reminiscent of parsley and celery. It is also called perpetual celery, bastard celery and mountain celery. It is used in sauces, stews and soups. Dried, its leaves will replace bay leaves and lovage salt will replace onion salt. Flowers and seeds are also edible. Leaves, stems and roots can be eaten cooked or raw. Its flowering umbels stand on stems up to 2 meters high. Lovage was once very present in the gardens of the first settlers. Archaeologists, when they flush out this tenacious perennial, can deduce that there were ancient colonization sites at this location. In Europe, it was consumed abundantly to fight scurvy. Already in the Middle Ages, the cultivation of this vegetable plant was recommended. It was also very common in the cuisine of ancient Rome.

You can start consuming it from the 2nd year.
Green Zebra Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Green Zebra')
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Tomato striped with yellow and green, very sweet, with emerald green flesh. The fruits grow in clusters and weigh about 80-110 g. Excellent in salads, it is particularly tasty stuffed with vegetables and au gratin, since it keeps its shape even after cooking. Good sweet-acid balance.

MAINTENANCE AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
Gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions about 10 days before planting by taking them out during the day. Lay the plants horizontally, slightly arching the plant to bring the leaves out.
