80-95 days maturity. Phaseolus vulgaris 'Akahana'. Akahana Mame Shelling Bean Seeds. Heirloom, Non-GMO. Warm-season annual. Open-pollinated. This "flower bean" has red flowers and deep maroon colored bean with a black background that wrinkle when dried. Grown as a pole bean, this variety produces pods up to 8" long with 1" long beans. Although they are not as convenient as the bush varieties, pole beans are described as sweeter, bigger, and more abundant with fruits in a much wider harvest window. The gorgeous flowers are a favorite of pollinators though they are self-fertile. Approx 100 seeds / oz.
