Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Organic Dark Red Kidney Beans
Dark Red Kidney Beans (96 days)
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.
