A very old bean believed to have been brought to England by French Huguenots. This bean was also canned commercially in the early 1900’s in Ontario. The 1908 McKenzie Seed catalogue states that the Refugee bean is "An immense producer and valuable for pickling." The green pods are striped and contain small pinkish beige seed mottled with black. Some dark seed among the others is normal. A very productive and early bush bean. Can be used as a very tasty snap bean when young or as a dried bean. Very dependable and disease resistant. One of the most productive beans available.
