Try Blue Jay Bean in place of Black Valentine.
1006-LO Phaseolus vulgaris
(Bush—GREEN SNAP) 52 days to snpa stage.
Introduced by Peter Henderson & Co. in 1897, this excellent green bush bean has stuck around in home and market gardens for good reason! The cold-tolerant black seed doesn’t mind a bit of extra moisture. Purple blossoms yield lots of slender, slightly curved, 6" beans that hold their snap for quite a while. Excellent choice for canning and freezing.

Les fleurs pourpres produisent beaucoup d’haricots minces de 6 pouces qui sont légèrement courbés et conservent leur caractère croquant pour une bonne durée. Un excellent choix pour la congélation et la mise en conserve.
