Artisan Jewelry from Hand Sown and Harvested Organic Heirloom Seeds

Seed of the Month focuses on the heirloom stars of our jewelry designs

Each month, Saverine Creek Heirloom Seed Jewelry focuses on a bean or seed to introduce you to the little beauties around which we center our designs.

April 2018 introduces you to the Red Calypso Bean.

The Red Calypso Bean is one of the beans my brother grew in the year 2000 that inspired me to make jewelry using heirloom seeds.

Originally from the Caribbean, it was a staple food for our nation's Midwest frontier settlers in the 1800s. It's color isn't red but more of a deep wine or maroon color. It's distinctive color pattern is consistent, occasionally with a perfectly round dot on the white background of the bean.

The plant grows as a short, compact bush so nice for the home gardener. When young, the pods can be harvested and used like the common green bean. The older bean that is dried is tasty and we love these beans in chili. They hold their shape and pattern, and have a subtle smoky flavor.

Just look at the photos; the Red Calypso is truly a beautiful bean!
