Question: I am trying to find seed for a particular kind of pole beans my parents used to grow. We always pronounced them Patteridge Head but other people in that community called the Partridge head. The coloring on the bean itself resembled the head of a bird.
Answer: I think the bean variety you're looking for is in Johnny's Selected Seed's catalog. (Named Old Fashioned Soldier). Contact them (207-437-4301) for a catalog, or to place an order. Enjoy!
