    Story of this variety

     

     

    Details of this variety are found in Pazhani copper inscriptions.  It has been observed in farmers fields that during drought seasons the modern varieties completely dry and wither away.  However, Vadan samba can survive without irrigation even upto a month.   The dried up Vadan samba comes alive once the rains arrive.  The yields may decrease because of this but however the crop is not completely lost like a modern variety.
