    "Pawnee" An original bean of mine named by me in 1979 and discovered growing among a bean called "Brown Kidney" This bean has been around now for 38 years. Can be found on the internet being sold by many heritage seed companies, and in collections in Europe. I first listed the bean in the 1982 and '83 SSE yearbook. The bean can also be found in a Mother Earth News magazine article. Bush/Dry. 90 days to first dry pods. Very clean shelling, productive on upright plants without runners.

    "Yellow Jacket" True bush grows without runners. An out cross with a bush Borlotti bean and the Danish bean variety Prinsesse. This bean has not been very productive or grown very well. I have often thought about giving up on the idea of growing it any further. Pods are short and don't usually contain very many beans.
