Description

Bean - Red Mexican - Phaseolus vulgaris

Tender annual Bush. Dry. Heirloom. This variety is also known as "Montezuma's Red" and was introduced in the 1800s. This prolific dry-land variety is outstanding for baking.

Did You Know? Legumes are a good source of calcium and iron and help to add nitrogen to soil.

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

Planting & Growing: Direct seed when the danger of frost is past. This red bean is a very prolific, long-season, small bush bean which grows well in drier soils.

Harvesting & Storage: Leave the pods on the plant until they have completely dried. Store dry, shelled beans in an airtight container

Love the taste of these beans

I had a lot of luck growing these beans. Mine did not grow as the other person stated. For me they grew as a bush, so easy to grow, just plant, water and let them dry on the plant.

Great producter, but not bush beans

I grew these this past year for the first time and they produced very well. Lots of pods filled with many fully formed beans. I planted one small package and harvested around 3 lbs when fully dried and shelled. I have now cooked some and they are very good. The only negative comment is that these are NOT bush beans. I planted some near a fence and some in a bed. The ones planted by the fence vined over 7 feet. The ones planted in the bed were a tangled mess. I was able to harvest from them but it was dramatically more work that just pulling pods off the fence. I will grow them again next year, but only where they can vine.
