Quelle mit möglicherweise Bezug zu dieser Sorte: "Gross-, Pferde-, Puff-, Sau- und Ackerbohne, Vicia faba: Im Wallis meistens Grossbohne genannt. Die Grächner und Ausserberger werden mit dem Übernahmen Grossbohnen bespitzelt. Das diese Bohnenart sehr alt sein muss, bestätigt mir, dass ich in der mir zur Verfügung gestandenen Fachliteratur keine einzige Sorte mit dunkelvioletten Samenkorn finde. (...)" Quelle: (Antwort-)Brief von Constantin Sellwald, dipl. Gärtnermeister, Terbinerstrasse 35, 3930 Visp an die Schweizer Bergheimat, z.H. von Herr Pierre Guntern, Sekretär, Chatzenrain, 5320 Fehraltdorf ZH am 5.5.1983. Weitere Quelle mit möglicherweise Bezug zu dieser Sorte: ?Purple Bean (Fève Violette). ? We mention this variety, although it is now seldom grown, on account of the remarkable color of the seeds, which, when ripe, assume a reddish or deep coppery hue. In all other respects it has a considerable resemblance to the July Bean. The seeds weigh 630 grammes to the litre; 100 grammes contain 72 seeds? und ?The Purple Sicilian Bean (Fève Violette de Sicile) ? is also a purple seeded variety. Its habit of growth resembles that of the Large Common Field Bean, but it is a smaller and less-productive kind. The seeds are of a very pronounced violet colour, but they do not begin to assume this hue until they are fully grown. Their peculiar colour is a drawback.? Quelle: The vegetable garden by MM. Vilmorin-Andrieux, English Edition by Ten Speed Press, S27
