Phaseolus vulgaris

Dwarf (bush) bean. Plants produce large pods, up to 12cm long, that are green with red speckles containing speckled red seeds(beans) that dry to a tan colour. Pods are excellent eating when young but are more often left to fully mature for dried bean production. The seeds within the pods are used as a dried bean and have an excellent flavour ideal for soups, stews and homemade baked beans. Very productive. Dried beans store very well.

Pick regularly to encourage more growth. Pods are best when young and tender. Let pods fully mature if growing for dried beans.

Grown using organic heirloom open pollinated seed, no sprays, no chemicals in organic nutrient rich soil with gypsum, volcanic rock, minerals and compost in trays. No blood and bone no fish.
