Black Seed Wax Bean
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.

Plant approximately 1 meter tall. Round fruits with a diameter of approximately 8 cm. Rare tomato variety. Firm flesh with an exquisite taste. All red tomatoes wish they were Plourde.
Grown since 1925 in Saint-Alexandre de Kamouraska, Quebec, by Aurélius Plourde and his family. Handed to Jeannot Pelletier and then to René Paquet. The latter cultivated and selected it before introducing it in Seeds of Diversity Catalog. According to the man who saved this Quebec heirloom : « The Plourde is an old beauty who forgot its own identity ».
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.
Pkt : 25 seeds.
Beautiful golden-orange skin with yellow striped flesh. Doesn't bleed and will not stain your fingers. Delicious sweet taste, raw or cooked, as you like it. Keeps its colour when cooked. All parts are edible, the buttery green leaves and yellow stems are almost as good as the gold root.
Very easy to grow, only requires love.
Pkt : 60 seeds.
Dwarf bean variety that produces a seed halfway between pea and fava bean. According to the Potager d'Antan : « It was still being cultivated in 1999 by a 80 year old man from Lotbinière, Monsieur Laliberté, who confirmed us the plant was unique in Canada. (...) Given by Laliberté's son to Antoine D'Avignon, Seeds of Diversity guardian angel. Antoine passed away in 2003. His sister, Mme. Gisèle D'Avignon, gave us the seeds. »
Delicious in pea soup, a traditional meal in the province of Quebec in the past century.
This variety is very rare and is considered endangered.
Fruits weigh between 80 and 100 grams and have a diameter of 6 to 8 cm.
Natural cross between the Green Zebra and an unknown tomato. Red round fruits with yellow stripes grow in clusters. Very productive and uniform in quality, with sweet juicy flesh.
Fruits weigh between 35 and 40 grams and have a diameter of approximately 3 cm.
Very productive pale yellow cherry tomato. You will enjoy the feel of this hairy little one (if you have nothing better to do than to caress your tomatoes before putting them in your salad, obviously). Very very sweet!
