Of ‘Fazanten-oog’ zo genoemd omwille van de gelijkenis van een fazanten-oog met het patroon van deze boon.
“Originated from a plant found in ‘Bountiful’, it retains all the good points of that variety with added symmetry of pod… The dry bean is slim, kidney shaped. Color white , splashed more or less at eye side with yellowish brown, which coloring also surrouds eye. The name, Pheasant eye, was suggested by this coloring”
