Bean, Dark Red Kidney
Erect bushy plants produce an abundance of pods containing 5-6 beans. Beans are dark red and very flavorful. Great for making chili or red beans & rice dishes. Once dried, beans store well for a long period of time. After beans have matured and begun to dry, entire plants can be pulled from the garden and hung to dry in a protected place if rain or excessive humidity is forecast. Once the beans have dried, it is very simple and easy to thresh the beans by putting the pods into a pillow case and beating it to separate beans from their shells. After harvest, keep the beans in a cool, dry place and enjoy eating them all winter long! There is nothing like a hot bowl of chili on a cold winter day!
