Good looking lettuce, savory and decorative. Its leaves are defined and lobed. This lettuce is resistant to going up into seeds. The leaves can be harvested at their base while leaving its heart intact. This way, you may extend the harvesting window as new leaves will keep growing. You can otherwise wait for maturity and harvest the head all at once. Its leaves measure approximatively 15 cm ( 6 inches) and are can be preserved well in the fridge.

Old dwarf cultivar from Beauce, Quebec. Its green pods are covered with purple stripes. It can be eaten as green or dry beans. According to many, they're the best choice to make baked beans (fèves au lard). However, Boucher Family bean fans disagree. The solution? Mix 'em both!
Beauce territory was originally occupied by the Iroquoian Nation of the Saint-Lawrence. It is therefore a possibility that this bean comes from a variety that they were growing. With the arrival of the first Colonizers many trades happened, among which beans were handed to the newcomers. With this gift, they then continued selection over many years to create different varieties.
This variety, Thibodeau du comté Beauce, was found by Mr Marc Warsha. He was given the seeds by Mr Martin Roy from St-Zacharie, in Beauce. The cultivation of this bean had been carried for 4 generations, starting with the great-great-grandmother of Martin Roy, as far as we can trace back.
The name, Thibodeau du comté Beauce, was first listed in the Seed of Diversity catalogue in 2003.
