Small seed is white with grayish green speckles and orange around the hilum. Great for baking or soup. Quite productive plants with short runners. A very early and disease resistant bush plant. A very old variety.

2015: PSS
Note: There is also a cranberry pole bean. (see the Amishland seed site)
"Can be used as a snap, shell or dry bean. As a dry bean, the variety stores exceptionally well. Maroon-colored beans are decorated with darker red, cranberry markings. This variety, dating back to the 1800s, is well-suited to short-season, cool summer climates."
** The beans that I have growing appear to be very similar as "Gross Brothers Vermont Cranberry bean" sold by Victory Seed. Pods are slim and flat, look like they would be good snap beans. There seem to be MANY different types of "cranberry beans," many with red-streaked pods (which mine are not).
