Post #9227785

I received these seeds from a friend of mine. He says they are green-bean seeds from Germany. He says a friend of his was stationed over there and asked to buy some of these, but the Germans refused to allow an American to take these seeds home. So...of course...he stole several and brought them back. These seeds are the BIGGEST green bean seeds I have ever seen. They are slightly purple in color.

Does anyone know the name of this species?

I am going to grow them out to save seeds, but I don't know if I have enough time this year. I only have six seeds. If anyone knew what these seeds were, then I could decide to grow them this fall instead of waiting until Spring.

Any ideas?

Thanks for any info, Mike
