Tung's Bean Seeds were preserved by the Kerr family of Long Beach, BC since the early 1900’s. In 1906 James D. Kerr immigrated from England and settled at Long Beach on Kootenay Lake. He hired a Chinese laborer, by the name of Tung to help him on his new 50 acre property. Mr. Tung was in charge of the vegetable garden and planted these beans that he had brought from China. After 25 years Mr. Tung returned to his homeland and the beans were preserved by the Kerr family. Tung’s beans are a pole variety with delicious green long pods and shiny brown seed. Best used as a snap bean. (65 days for snaps) Pole.
