The listing, Heirloom Ratlesnake green bean seeds has ended.

Rattlesnake bean pods can grow up to 8 inches long. The seeds inside start out creamy white and darken as they age, developing sepia and dark brown patterns. The plant is also called Preacher bean because it grows so well it gives you something to preach about! Further historical info states that Rattlesnake beans hail from the Southwestern United States, in particular the Hopi Indians and sown with the aid of Kokopelli, a mythological being associated with fertility and germination.
This variety of bean is drought resistant and perfect for sandy soils. Flavor-wise, Rattlesnake bean pods are crisp and snappy and the seeds are meaty, holding their shape when cooked in soups and stews.
When growing these beans, choose a location where they will have plenty of room, as the vines can get up to 10 feet long. Plant seeds after all danger of frost has passed. Push them an inch into soil and 2 inches apart. Provide some sort of support for the vines as they grow and keep the plants moderately moist.

Harvest the plants consistently to ensure more frequent flowering and higher yields. Use a side dressing of compost or manure when growing Rattlesnake snap beans. Try them fresh and dried. Dried beans make excellent chili, casserole or simply a side dish.

You will get 30 seeds harvested by me last year.
