(a.k.a. Cornhill Bean, Mayflower) Amish Nuttle Bean seed was offered for sale by Bernard McMahon as early as 1802 and was also grown by the Amish for generations. Prior to this time, the Seneca and Iroquois called it the Corn Hill Bean and the Seneca considered it one of their oldest beans. It is ideal to grow with corn and is a typical cutshort variety with short, bumpy pods. The beautiful seed is small, squarish, beige with rose speckling on one end. Good for baking, stews and soups. Although most sources say that it is a late maturing variety, I have been growing it for a number of years in Manitoba with much success.
Days to Maturity: 95 days for dry beans
Amish Nuttle Bean seeds have 25 seeds per packet
