(95 days) Oregon heirloom with unsurpassed eating quality. Perhaps the most beautiful of all dried beans. Produces differently colored beans in every pod - solid mocha-colored, bittersweet chocolate-colored many with contrasting stripes or marbling. Small-sized beans. Hardy, very productive bush-type plants can be a bit sprawly. Disease resistant and easy to grow.
