SeedSavers Meeting – February 21 2021

photo – The image this month is of a ‘Black Coat’ Runner Bean pod grown here in the Blue Mountains – an heirloom variety of Phaseolus coccineus. This variety is one of the oldest known being tracked back to being mentioned at least in the mid 1600’s in 1654 by German botanist Michael Titus. It’s a classic runner bean shorter pod style with chunky soft succulent tasty pods surrounding a series of beans that almost glow in the dark with a strong pink or crimson colour which then changes to a dark intense black when fully ripe. The pods have a beautiful multicoloured glossy but slightly furry texture. They are one of the runners that can be eaten fresh raw or cooked and the beans themselves are pretty good as a cooked dry bean too.

It’s that time again!
This is just a quick reminder that the first scheduled meeting for the year 2021 of the Mid Blue Mountains SeedSavers is on at the Bullaburra Progress Hall  this coming weekend.
