From Our Garden Niagara
Beans - Jacob's Cattle
This open-pollinated heirloom bush bean takes 90 days to mature to a beautiful deep maroon and white speckled bean which resembles the markings of a cow. You can also eat it as a green bean within 60 days.
Jacob's Cattle bean has a fruity, rich, and nutty flavour making it a delicious addition to soups and stews. They hold their shape and flavour well under long cooking times, but can be cooked in less time than your average dried heirloom.
~ Heirloom beans are the pride of Start Me Up Niagara’s farm in Vineland. Our "Bean Appetite" label was lovingly designed by one of the participants in the SMUN community. ~
