Munsi Wolf Bean

Munsi Wolf Bean

In addition to growing the Shackamaxon bean and its earlier variant that re-emerged, my main crop of beans this growing season were the Munsi Wolf Bean (pictured left).  Just as with the Shackamaxon bean, I had two types of pods and beans produced by the plants.  The predominant bean (purple and cream speckled) is a beauty of a bean to behold and the pod is speckled as well.  The only information that I have about this bean is that it was “originally grown by the Lenape Indians of the Delaware Water Gap”  I will be adding this bean to my Lenape demonstrations in 2011.
