HANKS XTRA SPECIAL BAKING BEAN (Phaseolus vulgaris) was a family favorite rediscovered and propagated in the Hudson Valley. I read about it in the New York Times where it was touted as a truly special bean for baking and soups with a tender texture, creamy interior and sturdy skin. The elongated white seeds fill the buff-colored pods on plants 18" high and take about 85 days to mature but you will let them dry on the plant before pulling the entire plant on a dry day, hanging inverted in paper bags to finish drying and then shake the bags vigorously to loosen the bean seeds. Very vigorous, as you can see from my 4 x 4 test garden of them. Limited quantity. 50 Seeds.
