Description

Bean - Black Turtle - Phaseolus vulgaris

Tender Annual Bush. Heirloom. Tall, erect plants bear small, jet-black beans. Its mellow flavor is reminiscent of mushrooms. Great for soups and refried beans, black beans are a staple of Latin American, Creole and even Cuban cuisine.

Did You Know? Legumes are a good source of calcium and iron.

Soil & Water: Legumes like well-drained soil rich in organic matter and a moderate amount of nutrients. Water lightly at planting, medium at flowering, and heavily throughout harvest time. Avoid overhead watering which can promote disease.

Planting & Growing: Start indoors in short-season climates, or seed directly once soils have reached at least 65°F, preferably after the last frost. Make small, successive plantings every 10 days for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: Bush beans will produce all of their fruit over a few weeks' time. Leave the pods on the plant until they have completely dried. Store dry, shelled beans in an airtight container.

Good producer

These beans grew well and produced dried bean pods by the end of July, but still had blooms on the plants. I discovered that as long as I kept harvesting the dried pods, more blooms came on and made more beans! I quite a harvest of these beans and at this time (mid-September) I still have blooms and immature beans on the plants! Wow

Excellent Drying Bean

I grew these beans for the first time during this years' growing season. In our cool Maine climate, the season can be rather short for drying beans. It was no problem for these little plants, which grew strong and matured well before first frost. The pods suffered very little insect damage and produced some of the prettiest little dry beans I have seen, up to six per pod. Excellent!
