I've seen Burpee packets of pole pinto beans at my local building supply stores, as well as some Mackenzie pole pinto bean packets. I don't think I've ever seen commercial seed companies sell kidney beans. You'd probably have to order those from an online seed company.I thought this might be the place to ask. Anyone know of a company that’s selling kidney and/or pinto beans? I’d prefer bulk but honestly I’d take just a packet at this point. Normally we pick them up at the local coop but they didn’t have any this year. I’ll try store bought beans if I have too but I’d prefer not to.
@flowerbugnosing around definitions and explanations...
phaseolin (a globulin (globular protien)) of beans:
Among Phaseolus beans, three distinct types of phaseolins – named after cultivars Tendergreen (T), Sanilac (S), and Contender (C) – have been identified. Screening of 107 cultivars has revealed that S-, T-, and C-type phaseolins accounted for 69%, 25%, and 6%, respectively, of the total cultivars.
