Primarily used for dried beans. High source of protein and fibre. CULTURE: Sow the same as green bush beans. Allow the pods to mature and the plants to die off. Harvest the plants then hang them to dry for proper curing. Pick pods off when they are hard and the beans shake in the pods. Thresh or shell the seeds. To control insects in storage, place seeds in the oven for 10-15 minutes at 250F or freeze for 3 hours.
Note: Our seed is not treated. Due to unpredictability of soil temperatures and moisture, we cannot be held liable for germination failure when soil is too cool or wet. For early crops, we suggest seeding only part and covering with a row cover.
