Bean, NICKEL

Bean, NICKEL

A tender, stringless, dark green, about 4 in long, not old nor so recent French bush variety of a green bean (released in 1994) and a very good yielder. Seeds are slow to reach maturity, making it nice for extended harvests. (Downside is it needs a full season to harvest seeds!) White seeds. Its variety protection rights were dropped some time ago (withdrawn or expired), making it possible to propagate them. (That type of ‘protected variety’ is called obtention in French, not exactly the same but much like what we call a PVP in North America, these protections last a few years and are generally dropped at some point due to a turnover in varieties, vs the cost to register it anew). But back to our beans! If left too long on the plant, seeds will be edible as shellies, and even as dry beans. Now you know what happens whenever we have surplus bean seeds!
