I love to grow a few of the lesser known varieties, and I'm passionate about keeping some of the heritage varieties alive and well. These lovely red and white beauties are 'Dog Beans'
. I really couldn't resist getting a few of these!
Here are my 'Lazy Housewife'
beans. These are just amazing! a really good grower, quite prolific and tasty too. I thought these would show better on a black background, so no apologies for the plug as |I had to use one of my leaflets!!
And here are some 'Negritos'
thought to be related to the small cuban black bean, these are the sort of small black beans you would mix with rice for a staple meal in Hispanic countries.
grow as small bush beans, quite short green pods, ripening to dark red.
