Heirloom, Organic, Non-GMO Whipple Bush Bean Seeds

Introducing Whipple Bush Bean Seeds - a delicious and easy-to-grow heirloom variety that is sure to become a favorite in your garden and on your plate! A rare dry bean from the Willamette Valley, Oregon. Named after the Whipple family.

The Whipple Bean was bred by Dana and Lee Whipple, who were from Chicago and participated in early co-op housing experiments and aided in the civil rights movement, where Lee Whipple marched with Martin Luther King.  Both Dana and Lee stood up for peace their entire lives. They retired to Oregon in the late 1970's where they transformed a logged over hillside into a productive homestead with orchard, berries, vineyard, garden, bee hives, juicing and a food preservation kitchen.

The Whipple Bush Bean is a productive and vigorous bush-type plant that produces abundant yields of crisp, tender, and sweet beans. These beans are medium-green in color and have a classic, straight shape that is perfect for a wide range of culinary uses. Plus, they are incredibly easy to grow, making them an ideal choice for both beginner and experienced gardeners alike.

One of the standout features of the Whipple Bush Bean is its disease resistance. This variety is resistant to common bean diseases such as Bean Common Mosaic Virus, Bean Rust, and Anthracnose, making it a reliable choice for a healthy and thriving garden.

Whether you are looking to grow your own food or simply enjoy the beauty of a lush garden, Whipple Bush Bean seeds are a great choice. These seeds are organic, non-GMO, open-pollinated, and perfect for home gardens, community gardens, and small-scale market growers.
