    "Selugia" This was the most productive pole dry bean this year. I got this bean from the Central Tree Crop Research Trust Of New Zealand in 2011. The bean grew true to type again this year without any off types.

    "Iroquois Cornbread" I grew this among the pole beans, but it spread over the ground. Prostrate growth habit this year. Produced lots of pods and I'm so very lucky that we didn't have any rain when it's pods dried this year. The pods lay near the ground. The bean didn't produce any off type seeds.

    "Empress" pole growth habit. I got some new lima varieties this year. This was one from Curt Burroughs who is from Memphis, Missouri and has a large lima collection. No off type seed.

    "Landfrauen" Pole snap bean from Switzerland. Long pods. This bean threw off two off type seeds this year for the second year in a row.

    "Emilia's Italian" Pole snap variety from Italy sent to me by Aftermidnight last year in 2016. I grew them only for seed this year. Will grow some for snaps next year. Hope they are stringless ! Bean grew true to type. No off types. Beautiful red splashed pods.

    "Hurley" Pole Lima. This lima was found among "Stevenson" in 2013. It grew true to type. Very productive. Produces smaller pods than the average lima like "Florida Speckled". "Hurley" is also the female Golden Lab across the street where I live.

    "Karachaganack" Grew as a semi runner. Ridgerunner's bean he named in 2016. Beautiful bean. Grew true to type for color of the seed coat, but I just think I detect two slightly different seed shapes. The bean came from the Will Bonsall outcrosses packet #39

    "Black Good Mother Stallard" Semi Runner. Comes from Debbie Groat of Rhodes, Michigan. She says this bean suddenly showed up in a grow out of "Good Mother Stallard" about 13 years ago. Since the bean never produced any off types the first time she grew it. Debbie thinks the bean must be a mutation. The beans are a little bit smaller than half the size of "Good Mother Stallard".
