hopi black french dwarf bean
story: in 2020 growing trials, some of these dwarf beans sent out 5 foot shoots! we will see how it grows out this year. it has pretty purple flowers, and can be eaten fresh or used as a dried bean.
when to sow: plant out pot-raised beans in late may and early june or sow directly from mid-may until july.
requirements: well draining soil, can be grown in pots.
harvesting: in the summer.
please remember, we will only send out three packs of seed to first-season growers. if you order more than this, you are likely to receive just three packs to begin with. this is to ensure we get plenty of data in return, and to keep our stocks sustainable for years to come.
