Red Swan Bush Bean (55 days, Organic)

3

Germ 4-10 days
Lavender pink is not your typical color for a bean and Red Swans vibrant pods will be a highlight of your garden season. Snap this crunchy bean in half to expose the contrasting green interior and taste the succulent romano like flavor. Interestingly, creating this brilliant bean color began with stabilizing a cross of a purple snap and pinto bean. Bush habit, with 4-5 “ long, stringless pods. 75 seeds.

 

PLANTING:

Outside- Bush type: 1” deep and 4-6” apart with soil temperatures above 60 degrees and after the last frost. Planting under 60 degrees results in poor germination. Pole type: Plant 1” deep and 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Drying type: 1” deep and 5-6” apart. Leave beans on the plant until the leaves are falling and pods are dry and withered

Harvest- Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually to prolong production.

Tips- Water well during hot dry period and do not over fertilize 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. Plant seeds every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest throughout the summer.

Good seeds

The seeds are coming up but at an uneven germination rate. This is just an observational comment, as many things can affect the germination rate. However I would still recommend Pinetree seeds because I purchased other seeds and plants and they are doing great.

Looks like good seed

I havn’t planted these yet but they look like good seeds...none were cracked. I was impressed and happy that this company carried red swan bean seed because it is rare and often expensive. I paid a fair price, the shipping was quick, and the seed packets were very nice. I am very excited to have these again because they are the star of the garden when it comes to bean varieties.

Beautiful bean

I am giving these beans five stars for beauty. They were stunning. Even more vibrant than the photo. I wish that they kept their color when cooked. Or I wish that I liked eating beans raw, but I don't. They were crisp. Flavor wise they tasted fine, but there are other beans that I like more. But I will probably grow them again for their beauty.
