"HARSENS ISLAND"

 

Incredibly rampant, incredibly productive and disease resistant. Pods average 8 inches long with many being 10 inches. Pods grow arrow straight and stay tender for an exceedingly long time on the vine. You will need a very sturdy trellis system! This is the perfect bean for home processing (canning, freezing).

 

HISTORY: I obtained this variety through a friend who lives on Harsens Island, MI (an island near Algonac, MI). They had been growing it for a handful of years after having been given seed from an elderly gentleman who also had a place on the island but only spent the summers there. 

 

I grew it for myself in 2015, and was really impressed.  Apparently, the elderly gentlemen said that he had been growing it for 35 years and that if he recalled it was an Italian bean.
