    Are you directly from a Hungarian Background?

    If so , I have a gardening specific question to ask of you or your relatives "that have intimate gardening background knowledge related to Hungary". Having traveled there, I have an interest in a certain bean that is widely grown there. Shoot me a PM & I can provide my email & a link to a recent article in the UK newspaper-The Telegraph that best explains exactly what I'm after,thanks!

    I thought of you even though we've never met because Cleveland,OH (your location) is full of Hungarian culture. If you think I speak/understand, Hungarian (Magyar?) language-nope, not me.
    Do you know, have any "Hungarian people" in your circle of relatives or friends that seriously garden?
    Simon-is that Hungarian?

    Sorry, I am not Hungarian. Was born and grew up in Germany. Have a couple of friends who are of Hungarian descent and when I lived over there, you could get Hungarian Goulasch a lot and the original was made with a red bean, if that is what you talk about. "Simon" could be Hungarian, but the name exists in many different cultures.

    Nope, it's not that bean, which I've seen there & here too. This one is whats called a butter bean or a pole lima in USA but in UK I know they call them "runner beans". I have zero idea what the Hungarians call them.They are a large seed,shaped like a butter bean & the bean itself are solid colors, widely varied from the same seed stock-black,purple,reds,browns,tans,beige and in between those. There are a bunch of Hungarian cultural websites for Cleveland area but none seemed particularly good candidates to gain information.
    I do have an email out to a lady in UK that raises them(as seen in a detailed article from Oct18,2013 edition,gardening section but it's through a staff writer for The Telegraph newspaper & may die there. I figure somebody raises this bean here as it was very commonly seen in the produce mkts in Hungary. Huge piles of them shucked on large wooden tables.
    Ideas for the Cleveland area?
