French bean



An early, productive variety carried on the Oregon Trail by settlers travelling to Washington State in the 19th century. Their descendants passed seeds to Prof. Donald Fowler of Liberty University, Virginia, USA in the early 1980s, hence the name. The compact (40-50cm) plants produce white flowers, which fade to apricot with age, and crunchy, green, stringless, pencil pods. Seed colour dark brown.
