Phaseolus vulgaris

Annual plant, open pollinated.

Bush bean. Dry bean. 

This is an old heirloom grown by the Hopi tribes of the Southwest. The black beans are small and produced in abundance. This is a very versatile bean, used mainly for refried beans (yum), chilis and also as a natural dye (look it up)!

It is a great variety for short seasons like ours. 

Days to maturity: 100 days for dry beans.

40 seeds per pack. 

Seed starting:

For bush beans, pole beans and runner beans. 

Direct seed in your garden once all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Beans do not tolerate frost. Early June is when we plant around here. Sow seed about 1” deep. Darker coloured seeds tend to germinate better in cooler soils. 

Pole beans and runner beans need something to climb!
