Mennonite bean (Phaseolus vulgaris 'Mennonite')
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.
