Blue Jay's 2022 Bean Show - Day 1
#15-Sux-YeE-7 - Bush Dry - 2022 Grow Out
One of the many Robert Lobitz legacy beans that I have acquired from a former member of Seed Savers Exchange Ron Thuma who acquired the original samples from Roberts brother James in 2008. After a few years of grow outs Ron said he was frustrated with these grow outs and sent me Robert Lobitz's beans that he had not established as stable or named. Sadly within a few years Ron began having severe memory problems and passed away two years ago.
This bean now as far as I can tell is stable and I need to give it a name. It is the seventh segregation of Robert's code Sux-YeE-C-97A. I have changed the code numbers slightly to keep track of the beans and segregations.
The first photo is of the sample I had originally received in 2015. Photo number two is how this seventh segregation now appears. The beans are small close to the size of a snap bean with a brown soldier or bird figure around the eye and very productive. 10 to 11 plants produced 17.1 ounces (484.7768 gm)
