Old heirloom (Unknown origin )came as a gift from a woman in the southern black community .It is some sort of pea/bean like black-eyed peas in growth habit but taste different and looks different.It has no insect or disease problems and is a reliable producer of large beans that are held on the top of the plant in 8 inch long pods . Delicious fresh ,about the size of baby limas and easy to shell. Also makes a supurb creme soup (hence the name) from the dried beans.

All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds . The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
