Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
The Refugee snap bean may be synonymous with the “Switzerland gray” bean Thomas Jefferson sent home from Paris in 1786. Refugee, named for the French Huguenots who introduced it into general cultivation, was sold by American seedsmen as early as 1822. Refugee became one of the most widely grown of the green-podded beans well into the twentieth century. It was especially popular with southern growers for shipment of late snap pods to northern markets.

Seeds of Refugee should be sown in rows or drills, 6” apart, in sunny, fertile garden soil after the last spring frost. Harvest the pods when young and 3” – 6” long.

Approximately 20-25 seeds per pack.
