Black Coco Shell & Dry Bean - Organic


Black Coco Shell & Dry Bean - Organic

(60 days shell, 85 days dry) A triple-treat bean that is a joy to grow because it is so easy. 2' plants set abundant 5" round pods of plump shiny black seeds that resist shattering in the garden, yet are easy to shell. Coco can be harvested as a green bean although it gets tough if harvested when fully mature. Ten days later it’s a good shell bean, but really comes into its own as a refried or soup bean. Larger than other black beans—and early! Cooks quickly with a delicious aroma that promises a hearty robust soup.

Additional Information

Shell and 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. Pick frequently for maximum yields, but avoid disturbing foliage in wet weather to prevent spread of fungal diseases.

Harvest shell beans when the beans are plump inside pods. For dry beans allow pods to dry on the vine until pressing the beans with your fingernail leaves no indentation. If heavy rains threaten just before maturity, pull plants by the roots and hang them in a dry place to finish or pick pods, shell and finish drying indoors.
