Bean - Dry Hutterite - Phaseolus vulgaris
Tender annual Bush. Dry. Heirloom. The Hutterites moved to North America in the 1760s, bringing this valuable bean as a staple food. It is an early variety and well adapted to northern climates. Vigorous and productive, it cooks up in record time needing only 20 minutes (if soaked over night) to turn into a delicious, creamy chowder.
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. Overhead watering can promote disease.
Planting & Growing: Sow directly in garden when soils have warmed and danger of frost has passed. Keep seedbed evenly moist.
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.
Did You Know? Legumes are a good source of calcium and iron and add nitrogen to soil.
