Tongue of Fire Bush Bean (60 days ,Heirloom)

Germ 4-10 days
Heirloom
One of the most fascinating heirloom beans. Begins with having young edible stringless pods transforming into large sized beans with a pinkish red flame pattern intensifying as the plant ages. Sizable beans have a creamy, mild flavor. Absorb added flavors well. They can be used fresh shelled, canned, frozen, or dried for later use. Originally collected from the tip of South America, Tierra del fuego; then sent onward to Italy. 6-7” pods, bush type. 75 seeds.

(60 days green, 75 days shelled, days 95 dried)

 

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.

    Favorite Bean

    Plant growing well, and just picked my first dozen beans with another dozen that should be ready to pick in a few days.
