Large drought-tolerant white kidney beans with red-brown soldier-like figures on the eyes. A New England favorite for generations.

Additional Information

Dry Beans

Phaseolus vulgaris 2 oz packet sows 25 ft; 1 lb, 200 ft. All bush beans except where noted.

Culture: In conditions of high nitrogen fertility some bush beans may develop vines in moist hot weather. Tender, will not survive frost. Plant 3–4 seeds/ft in rows 24–30" apart. Avoid disturbing foliage in wet weather to prevent spread of fungal diseases.

Allow pods to dry on the vine until pressing the beans with your fingernail leaves no indentation. If heavy or prolonged rain threatens when nearly dry, pull plants by the roots and hang them in a dry place to finish or pick pods, shell and finish drying indoors.
