Grandma Nellie's Yellow Mushroom

A very unique heirloom originally from Russia. In 1952, Nellie Chernoff obtained a seed for these beans from a Russian lady. Nellie grew them in Kamsack, SK until 1988 when her granddaughter, Marge Mozelinsky, took over the preservation of these beans. Marge has been growing them ever since. The pods are a nice yellow color and the seeds are dark brown. The unique trait of this variety is that the flavor of the pods is similar to mushrooms when cooked! Low Quantity!
