July seed of the month

Bean 'Kahnawake Mohawk' 

Exclusive to Diggers through our Seed Donation program, the original seed was brought to Australia by John, an Italian Gardener, who shared this seed over a decade ago with Kel York a Diggers member and
Seed Donor.

A standout in our trials, this was one of the first beans to crop, bearing pods in just 8-9 weeks! This is a rare heirloom bean cultivated by the Iroquois First Nations of Kahnawake, in Québec. We are proud to be able to share this precious heirloom with Diggers Members across Australia.
