90 days. From the Hidatsa tribe from the Missouri valley in North Dakota and was described in Buffalo Bird Woman's Garden, this is one of the most beautiful shelling beans. Pale cream with a gold saddle, it is very distinctive as well as delicious. It cooks up creamy and flavorful, a wonderful choice for a pole shelling bean.

What a fun bean to grow! The seed germinated reliably, the plant grew easily with big leaves, the early pods with up to 6 beans, were delicious to eat, and when left to dry on the vine, it crisped up beautifully. Not to mention the beautiful beans itself. The beans have a nice buttery flavor, but doesn't fall apart and become mushy, making it a great bean for dishes with liquid.
