Alice Whitis Pink

Donated by John Yeoman, formerly of The Village Guild. This 1930s heirloom was originally grown and saved by Alice Whitis in Acorn, Kentucky, USA, and is named for its seed colour. It produces vigorous 2-2.5m plants with white flowers and tender pods that are at their best if eaten when young and stringless. Also a good drying bean. Seed colour pinkish.
