I have been given a hand full of Striped Creaseback Beans, which I have planted in pots, and have now germinated.

My problem is I can not find any information about these beans. I have no idea what to treat them as or even which part to eat.

Do you have any information you could share with me please.

Many Thanks
Steve Luxford

Hi Steve, Welcome!

I know nothing about growing beans and I see that we have limited information in our database for Snap Bean (String (Phaseolus vulgaris 'Striped Creaseback') but hopefully someone who grows beans will be along soon and will be able to offer advice.

Here's the description from the Southern Exposure Seed Exchange website (note that this variety is also called "Genuine Cornfield" and "Scotia"):

" 83 days. [Possibly of pre-Columbian origin, one of the oldest beans cultivated by the Iroquois who used it as a corn soup bean and bread bean. In the Cayuga Iroquois dialect its name means 'wampum bean.'] Shade tolerant, an old favorite for growing with corn. Straight 5-7 in. pods, gray-brown seeds with brown mottles and stripes. Best harvested before seeds fill the pods. Use for snap or green shell. Produces very well during high heat. A valuable variety for keeping the nitrogen in your corn patch. "

Sandy, our database has them listed as three separate cultivars
Snap Bean (String (Phaseolus vulgaris 'Striped Creaseback')
Snap Bean (String (Phaseolus vulgaris 'Scotia')
Snap Bean (String (Phaseolus vulgaris 'Genuine Cornfield')

@MikeD who represents Victory Seed Company is the moderator for our Bean Database and will be able to confirm.

I'll leave it up to Mike as to whether they should be combined Smiling

There are a LOT of beans that have been given multiple names over the years.
