Blue Greasy Grits Pole Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) A common Appalachian heirloom of the mid century that nearly went out of circulation by the 1960’s. Blue Greasy Grits bean has been recovering quite nicely in gardens across North America and beyond for good reason as it is a very popular variety of foodies, chefs, and heritage gardeners. Bean pods are plump and short having a smooth, shiny sheen to them, looking slightly ‘greasy’. Flavour is best described by a Chef at a “Radisson’ as having “a perfect nutty-buttery heirloom tase”. A recommended addition to your food growing inventory. Original seed source comes to us from the Secret Garden in Blyth, Ontario!
