Beans, Whipple, Bush  (90-110 days)

This is a real standout from our production in 2016 where it charmed its way into everyone's hearts on the crew. Vigorous growing bushy plants with short runners that make prolific sets of 6-8" pods that yield plump beans of deep purple with darker purple splotches. We received this bean from our friend and seed keeper, Marjory House who named the beans after Lee and Dana Whipple who retired to Oregon with several other families from the longest running family co-op outside of Chicago, Illinois. Mr. Whipple was a minister, and started the church of the Brethren in Springfield, but also guest spoke at many other churches. He also traveled around to, local schools to talk about equality for all races. He had marched and worked with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 60's in Chicago. HEIRLOOM. SSF. BE49 - 1 oz = $3.95
