Dark Red Kidney Beans (96 days)

Phaseolus vulgaris   

Seed pkg contains 1 oz or about 60 beans.

Dark Red Kidney is THE bean most commonly used in Mexican cooking, it puts the "Red" in the famous New Orleans dish "Red Beans and Rice" and is THE bean used in that famous Texas chili.  Who could be without this versatile bean?

This is a bush variety of dried bean.  Each pod contains 5 large, red, kidney-shaped beans. If rain threatens before your beans are totally dry, pull the whole plant up, hang upside down in your barn/garage to let them finish drying.  Then thresh inside an old pillow case. 

Once dry, these beans will store for a long time!  A perfect winter food full of protein straight from your own garden.  

Recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region.  OR,

Planting Tips for Heirloom Beans:

50-60 days for green, 100+ days for dry beans. Not cold tolerant, beans need warm soil of 65° or higher. Grow best in full sun with well watered soil. Regular harvesting of the young pods will ensure a greater yield. Boost yields and germination by adding inoculants.

Avoid planting in soil that stays wet.  Heirloom bean diseases thrive in wet conditions, and the roots may not get enough oxygen.

Heirloom beans like soil that is slightly acid, about 6.5.  This can be achieved by adding mulched pine needles, peat moss or sulfur. 

Try wide row growing for bush beans.  Make your heirloom bean rows three across instead of just one.  Three wide is perfect because most people can reach across that width.  You can grow 3 times the amount of heirloom beans in the same space, you reduce the amount of area for weeds, and you'll save on water.
