(Hopi Red Beans)
Annual. 50 to 55 days. This is a polebean that grows best with regular garden culture, fertile soils in the full sun. Provide trellis. Give plenty of water during growing phase and then stop watering to finish. Bean may be soaked overnight and slow-cooked the next day to make an incomperable chili dish. The beans taste nutty and cook to a smooth texture. 20 Seeds per Packet, Certified Organically Grown
errata: the 2013 spring/summer catalog calls this a lima bean but it is a regular pole bean (Phaseolus vulgaris), not Lima Bean (Phaseolus lunatus). Sorry, it came to us marked "Lima Bean" and we eventually realized it wasn't a Lima Bean.
