Red Adzuki Bean - Annapolis Seeds
Red Adzuki Bean (out of stock)

Vigna angularis - Adzukis aren’t a common sight in Canadian gardens but I’m hoping that will change. They’re every bit as worthwhile of a crop as regular dry beans. The bush plants dry down in September producing a multitude of seeds inside little pods. Approx. 150 seeds (10 g)

Windsor Fava Bean - Annapolis Seeds
Windsor Fava Bean (Out of stock)

An old English favourite. Planted as soon as the soil has warmed in early Spring it will produce a bountiful crop. Harvest the large plump pods, shell them into a pot of boiling water to blanch for 2 minutes.

Ethiopian Lentil - Annapolis Seeds
Ethiopian Lentil
Price: $3.00

Not the true lentil (Lens culinaris) but rather the species Lathyrus sativus, sometimes called the Grass Pea. Lathyrus is commonly grown in drought prone regions of southern Asia and northern Africa as an insurance crop, one that will dependably produce something even in the worst years. These drought tolerant plants climb up to waist high with tendrils. Plant densely for the plants to self-support themselves. They have blue flowers and a slightly vetch-like appearance. Seeds are angular, grey in colour and larger than true lentils. Approx. 75 seeds (10 g)

Lupini Bean - Annapolis Seeds
Lupini Bean
Price: $3.00

New for 2020 - Lupinus albus - Lupini are an annual relative to our common wild lupin. With big, edible, protein-rich seeds. Commonly grown around the Mediterranean, but rare in North America. I've been growing them for the past five years, selecting from the plants that do best for us in Nova Scotia.

They like cool weather, sow them around the same time as peas. Sturdy stalks reach about 3 feet, with small soft-purple flowers by mid-summer. The seeds are very bitter, and need to be rinsed and processed the right way to make them delicious. I'm still learning the process myself, I hope to report back soon! 20+ seeds - Limited supply this year
