Irish Seed Savers’ supporter Liam Gaffney passed along some of these seeds, which he had originally acquired from Kelly Gilliam in Canada. Kelly, the founder of Populuxe Seed Bank in Alberta, had been given 10 seeds of this heirloom variety to grow on and preserve. The history behind the bean is that it was grown by Ken Conners, born in Ireland in 1898, who then moved with his family to Boston, MA in 1900. The family, now living in British Columbia, to this day continue to maintain this variety. A rare find that performs well both undercover and outside, producing a wonderful rich chestnut brown-coloured bean. Vigorous and healthy with flat, green, tender, and delicious stringless beans, retaining their lovely flavour even after freezing.
