Organic Ireland Creek Annie Bush Bean (73 days)

Seed package contains 1/2 oz or about 35 seeds

Ireland Creek Annie Dry Bean seems to show up sometime in the 1930s. I'm still trying to get a good catalog date (year introduced) on this reliable producer.  The story goes that this bean is from Ireland Creek Farm in British Columbia, thus the name.

Plants get 24" tall and it is early for a dry bean.  Good cool weather emergence.  Delicious, great for soups. 

Hard to find these days and we have a very limited supply this year.

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.
