62 days. [Alabama heirloom, from seed sent by Douglas Pitts, whose neighbors grew them when Douglas was a boy. Possibly the best name for a vegetable variety ever, but no one seems to know how it got its name -- was it cooked with hog brains? Did it somehow remind people of hog brains?] 1-4 pods/cluster, 7-9 in. pods, cream-and-maroon seeds. Great flavor, good drought resistance. Pkt (28 g, ~122 seeds).
