October beans

Does anyone know anything about October beans, in particular the October beans that Nantahala Farms used to sell?

I had an old packet that I planted way too late last summer. Didn’t expect any dry seeds. I did increase my seed to about six packets. They had huge attractive, reddish striped pods. I didn’t have enough to try eating any. I don’t remember their advertised characteristics. I know they can be used as shelled beans or dried. Can they be used as green beans? Stringless? What makes them different from other poles beans? They are the same species? The seeds look kind of different. Do you plant them later for fall harvest or do they just take longer to mature? I think they’re supposed to have a huge bushy vine?

Alas, poor Yorick, he knew this tiny ad:
how do we get more backing of the brk?
