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
