Resurrected Chinese Beans. 8.28.16
We've had sveral meals from these Cinese bean seeds that I resurrected from packets in the 6 to 10 year old range, maybe older. There seem to be 3 types. The wider ones were what we remembered from the past. Wuote delicious, stir fried i the Northeast Chinese way with potatoes. Tradition calls for pork but I am vegetarian, and I think their flavor as is, is great
The intent is to save pods from each type. Beans normally pollinate within the flower, so may grow true. I would not be surprised, if they dont. I will label plants of each type for sed saving, so that I can segregate them next year. Red/pale, Red/green, and Black/green.
