This is an unique heritage variety, cultivated in the Rhodope Mountains! It’s a runner type of bean that grows vigorously and can easily climb 4 meter tall poles in a couple of months. The plants have beautiful scarlet red blossoms and keep flowering until the first frosts. It produces abundantly with little care other than watering. We easily get over 2 kilos of dry beans out of 20 planted seeds.

The beans are very large. When dry, the seeds are easily 2-3 cm long (1 inch!) and when soak for cooking, seeds become 4+ cm long. The local people joke that you have to eat it bean by bean, as there are no spoons big enough for two beans at a time! 🙂

We’ve been selecting only the black and speckled dark brown seeds and planting those only for several years. Still, about 50% of all new beans are white with some speckled purple in the mix as well. They’re also great for kids to play with!

You get 20+ seeds.

Shipping Policy

As our products are diverse, processing time can vary a lot so we'll let you know after we receive your order how long it'll be. The usual times are:

  • Ready-made handmade paper products ship in 2-3 workdays max.
  • Custom-made handmade paper products require at least 5-7 workdays to create, with as much as 2 weeks for complex orders like invitation and envelope combo for example. Time is counted after all details on the order are agreed on and the payment is received.
  • Seeds, cuttings and bare root plants depend on seasonal availability and could ship in a few days, up to a month if the weather does not permit collecting the plants. Get in touch for details before ordering!

Where do we ship to?

The handmade paper can be shipped worldwide and we've shipped plenty of orders since 2008 all around the world. Time in transit is usually 1 week for the EU, 2-3 weeks for the much of the world, 4 weeks for Australia and the Far East.

The plant material - seeds, cuttings, bare root plants, bulb, etc - is limited to the EU, as there are strict rules for overseas shipping. If you're willing to take the risk, we could ship the package, however it's probable that it won't pass customs on your side and will get returned to us.

Shipping prices

We have a standard shipping price for EU and USA customers. Please get in touch before ordering if you reside outside the EU or USA! We'll double check on the shipping price to your exact location before starting the order and will let you know.

Returns & Exchanges

If you're unhappy with our product, get in touch and we'll find a way to make things right. Usually, when given a good reason, we're OK to at least partially refund the cost of the product. We do not accept returns or exchanges, so you'll get to keep the product.

Cancellations are OK, just make sure to cancel before the date we specified for shipping.
