Jacob's Cattle Gold Bush Dried Bean (80 Days)

Edible green pods when very young and the exceptional cooking qualities of Jacobs Cattle come out after beans mature. Pods hold 6-8 dark golden seeds, speckled with white blotches. Used fresh or dried they soak up the flavors of soups, stews, and baked dishes. Bush type. 

75 seeds

 

 

PLANTING

Phaseolus vulgaris

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Sowing Outdoors: After the last frost with soil temperatures above 60ºF. Sow 2-3” apart. Planting in soil under 60ºF results in poor germination. 

How much does a packet plant: 12-15 foot single row 

Harvest: Leave beans on the plant until most of the leaves have turn brown and pods are dried and withered. If fall weather is wet or frost threatens the harvest, pull up the plants and finish drying indoors. 

Tips: Grow in light, well-drained soil, provide adequate, even moisture, especially at flowering time. Dry soil can result in low yields and fibrous pods. Do not over fertilize with nitrogen which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants.

    Nice drying bean

    Have never eaten these fresh, but they're a flavorful dried bean. I plant them in odd spots in the garden for their pretty foliage and let the pods dry and leaves whither. Dried Jacob's Cattle beans seem to be pricey in stores (if you can find them) so these are a treat to cook with over the winter. Four stars because they're not exceptionally prolific.
