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.
