Q.Large Butter Beans

Anonymous added on April 11, 2011 | Answered

I am looking for an old variety of large butter beans that my granny used to grow. It was a white bean that when cooked was a light tan. I am not sure if it was a pole or bush bean. Can you help?

You might be talking about either a Carolina butter bean or the Henderson butter bean. Both are white and were once very popular in the South. I am not sure if they cook to tan or not though.
