Shell/ Dry Bean Easy Tips
You can eat many shell beans when pods are young. Just like snap beans.
These are the true pioneer beans. Let beans dry on the plant and shell them for easy storage.
Best to harvest beans when 90% of the leaves have fallen off the plant and they are dry.
Pull the entire plant up by the roots and thresh.
Bean threshing is easy in a burlap bag or clean trash can.
Allow seeds to dry thoroughly before storing.
Varieties: Some of the many shell bean varieties are dwarf horticultural, red kidney, great northern white, soldier, pink, navy bean, yellow eye, pinto, orca, and Vermont cranberry.
