Taylor Dwarf Horticultural Shell & Dry Bean

Taylor Dwarf Horticultural
(68 days shell) Open-pollinated. Also known as Speckled Bays, this bush shell bean has been a traditional regional favorite since before 1800, producing cream-colored pods early. These are ready to shell when carmine-red splashes appear on them. Shell right after picking, boil until tender (30–45 minutes) and mix with olive oil, chopped garlic and parsley for a late summer treat. Buff seed with red stripes.

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.
