pods are tough and fibrous with a suture string. Mature pods average 3.5" long by 0.6" wide. Shelling (horticultural) beans have a good, smoky flavor that hints of chili beans
thin skin, soft texture. Moderately easy to shell. Leathery podded dry pods contain few seeds (1-3). Kidney-shaped seeds have a white base color with heavy, red-purple marbling. Dry beans have a smoky flavor and meaty texture that holds well during cooking. Mid-season maturing. donated to SSE in 1981 by John Withee of the Wanigan Associates.
