WHITE GREASY "LAZY HOUSEWIFE" POLE BEAN is a old and familiar North Carolina heirloom from Madison County beloved in the south for its buttery sweet flavor and very hard to come by. The pods are called "greasy" because they are somewhat glossy due to the absence of pod "hairs". Greasy beans are an Appalachian staple considered to be the finest heirloom beans in America, flavorful in a way that no modern bean (engineered for mechanized harvest) remotely resembles. This variety dates to 1810 and was first listed in W. Atlee Burpee's 1888 catalogue as a stringless bean (hence the name "Lazy Housewife"). Pods average 5" - 6"" long with white seeds. Pole Habit, 75-80 days. 50 seeds. 

GROWING TIP: All beans and peas are legumes and benefit from "inoculating" with rhizobacteria. These bacteria do the work of taking gaseous nitrogen from the air and "fixing" or concentrating it in pink root nodules which then slough off, adding nitrogen to the soil in a form other plants can take up as a nutrient. Inoculating your beans and peas will increase germination, and the health of your plants, helping them growing large roots and thus healthier plants. Growing pole beans with corn provides an extra shot of nitrogen to the corn, a wonderful natural symbiotic relationship that the Native Americans understood very well. You will see a big difference in overall results. Healthy legumes should also be turned under the soil when production ends as they are excellent green manure for your next crops.
