Phaseolus vulgaris

Get both beans (seeds) and pods in vibrant white/red colors. The straight, flat pods are 11-12 cm long and approx. 1.5 cm thick. Forms about 5-6 beans/pod. The beans/seeds can be cooked fresh or can be harvested when the pods have turned yellow, and the seeds are ripe and dry. For the latter the seeds are then further dried indoors for a few days for storage, and prepared later by soaking and subsequent boiling.

Thrives best in a sheltered location in a well-drained, loamy and moisture-retaining soil. Keep well-watered during flowering.

Do not eat beans uncooked.
