Apios americana (Rosary Potato) (Apios americana)
10.00 $ 10.00 $ 10.0 CAD
** CANNOT BE SHIPPED OUTSIDE OF CANADA **

KEEP REFRIGERATED FROM RECEIVING TO PLANTING!
Perennial climbing plant native to Quebec. It belongs to the legume family. It is suitable for banks and shores, but also for cultivated gardens. With its very fragrant flowers, it is reminiscent of wisteria. It is also called tuberous glycine. Its other name, wild bean, refers to the edible bean produced (in a favorable climate) by its flowers. Its tubers, also edible, are connected to each other by a vine root, hence its name of potato in a string. It was widely consumed by First Nations. Nowadays, it is not uncommon to see it growing on the site of former Native American villages. Very nutritious (it contains up to 18% protein, three times more than potatoes), it can be eaten boiled or fried. On the other hand, the peel contains latex, so it must be peeled.

*Note Rare people may be indisposed by consumption
Package 8 tubers of small size.
Germination rate 100%

For spring orders, plant in pots until you have access to the ground and can transplant them outside. Each tuber can germinate and give a plant. Cut the rosary into as many parts as it contains tubers. Place each tuber in a flat position, about 5-6 cm deep, much like you would a potato. (However, the Apios does not cut into several pieces like the latter).
You can mulch lightly, the stem will pass through a mulch. Stake.

After two weeks, a frail stem will emerge from the ground. It will roll up like a bean.
Harvest in the fall. When the leaves are dry, dig up the tubers with a pitchfork. A single tuber will give two to three “chains”.
You will have to dig a little further than where you planted. Put a single tuber back in the same place in anticipation of next year's harvest. Mulch. Apios americana is very resistant to Quebec winters.

Taste the rest. Be sure to peel and boil or fry well before eating, as the peel contains latex, which can cause stomach bloating.
True Red Cranberry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Climbing bean to be shelled. Variety from the Abenaki First Nations and part of the Slow Food Ark of Taste. The beans, when dry, are a fiery red making them look like a cranberry. White hilt. Rich flavor. Rare variety having been rediscovered by bean collector John Withee, who got it from Mr. Taylor of Steep Falls, Maine, after 11 years of research. He had read the description in an encyclopedia dating back to the 1700s. In 1981, John Withee donated his collection of 1,186 beans to the Seed Savers Exchange (USA). This variety appeared in several eastern New England catalogs in the 1850s, including one from Montreal, dated 1899, which listed this variety as very popular.

Very vigorous climbing green bean producing beautiful purple mauve flowers as well as very long striped green pods which are delicious eaten fresh. When dry, the beans are striped gray on a pale background. Note that the bean hilum is not located in the center of the bean, since it is not symmetrical.

Rocquencourt Butter Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris var. nana 'Beurre de Rocquencourt)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Golden yellow bean with long, thin pods. Very good productivity and stability. Originally from France and previously from Algeria. The more you pick, the more it produces, over a long period of time. Its advantage lies in the ability of its pods to remain tender for several days on the plant. So advantageous for traveling gardeners or market gardeners too busy to pick their beans every day. The seeds are elongated, deep black. One of the tastiest in our collection. Beans of this type were introduced to France around the 1840s under the name Haricot d'Alger, because they supposedly originated in Algeria. From this genetic pool of black-seed beans, the French developed other varieties including butters from Rocquencourt, a town near Versailles.

Avoid handling or removing weeds when the beans are wet to avoid the proliferation of diseases. With us, it is very resistant to diseases and very little watered, since it is mulched throughout the summer. When the seedlings have started to sprout, ensure that the plants do not lack water until the first true leaves appear.
