Grandmother bean (Phaseolus vulgaris)

Climbing green beans with 6 to 7 seeds in each pod. These are a pretty pink, very small, and very tasty when eaten dry. Is just as delicious fresh, and very very prolific. It was at a Seed Festival that Marie-Jeanne Disant, from Quebec, gave this bean to Mr. René Paquet, then volunteer representative of the Seeds of Diversity Canada kiosk. This one shared some of them with me, and when we grew them, we were immediately delighted with their performance... and their color!Marie-Jeanne Saying "I'm very happy to find other lovers of my grandmother's beans. I have been growing them since the 1970s and give them to whoever wants to take care of them, telling myself that it is important to save this heritage!For the record, I I actually got these beans from my grandmother, who lived in France and almost never moved from her little hometown in Ile-de-France, unlike these beans that have crossed the continents! from his neighbor from Switzerland who gave them to him between the two wars... How these beans arrived in Europe and ended up in Switzerland, I have no idea! But when I emigrated to the 90s from France for Quebec, I brought some in my shoes, telling myself that I was not doing a great from a trick to the regulations since all in all, I was only bringing these beans back to their continent of origin (...) Another small specification, they are eaten green even when the small seeds are forming inside, because they are very tender. (...)"Later, Madame Disant will tell us that the beans were in the shoes of her suitcase, not the shoes in her feet.
