Bean – Royalty Purple Pod – Phaseolus vulgaris

Soil & Water: Legumes like well-drained soil rich in organic matter and a moderate amount of nutrients. Water lightly at planting, medium at flowering, and heavily throughout harvest time. Avoid overhead watering which can promote disease.

Planting & Growing: Start indoors in short-season climates, or seed directly once soils have reached at least 65F, preferably after the last frost. Make small, successive plantings every 10 days for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: Bush beans will produce all of their fruit over a few weeks’ time. For best flavor, harvest the pods when they reach 1/2″ in diameter regardless of their length, or leave the pods on the plant until they have completely dried. Store dry, shelled beans in an airtight container.
