Bush bean that yields beautiful and tender green pods, more round than flat. Can be eaten as green beans or dry beans. The bean is white with a black and red spot, on one side only. A unique asymmetry. The dried beans, when cooked, are surprisingly sweet. High yielding. The variety potentially dates back to 1986, when it was bred in the U.S.

High-yielding yellow bush bean. Can withstand comparison with the Beurre de Rocquencourt. Delicious long yellow pods with black seeds. Can be eaten when young and tender or as a dry bean. Very productive over a long period of time, the more you pick the more it will give you beans.
This old variety comes from Sainte-Hélène, Kamouraska County, where it has been cultivated since time immemorial by Rollande Labrie (born in 1923) and her family. We are proud to offer it and ensure its preservation.
Wax bean originally comes from Algeria. Under the name Algiers Bean, it made its appearance in France in the 1840s. From then on, the French selected and developed many yellow wax beans with black seeds. The most famous one is the Beurre de Rocquencourt, named after a town near Versailles.Package: 30-35 seeds
It was brought by the first colonizers to New France. From then on, it became a key part of daily meals.
In the 1760s, with the arrival of the potato, the consumption of broad beans decreases all over Quebec except for a few regions. The 'Petite du Lac' variety probably comes from one of this period.
Alphonse Gauthier, former agronomist and horticulture professor at Institut de technologie agricole de La Pocatière, sent 'Petite du Lac' seeds to England (precise location unknown) for analysis. He was told that this cultivar had adapted to the Saguenay region and thus developped its own characteristics, making it stand out from this much bigger relative, the Windsor broad bean.
It is mostly eaten in soups, and brings a lot of energy. It is easy to store for the winter once dry.

On the outside, with its pale white skin, this ball-shaped radish looks boring. But inside awaits a splash of pink-colored flesh, truly like a watermelon.
Crisp and sweet taste, milder than many radishes. It is better to peel the hard skin. Ideal for carpaccio, can be eaten raw, roasted or stewed. Great if you wish to cause a sensation or want the children to discover radishes !
This Chinese heirloom is of the daikon type.

This bean comes from Romania. It was given to me by an old gardener from a community garden. He emigrated to Canada after the war and brought this bean with him, more than 50 years ago.
He prefers to eat the Fideluta half-dry, as shell beans, when the seeds are still young but already big in size.
Delicious in cassoulet stew.
