Phaseolus vulgaris

HEIRLOOM Classic frijoles negros widely used all over the Americas, especially in black bean soup. These beans are easy to grow, dry and harvest. Half-runner plants will sprawl out a bit, but shouldn’t need trellising. Heat and disease resistant.
In truth, any bean can be left on the plant until the pod and seeds are dry and then later cooked up for eating. This particular selection of beans are varieties that have exceptional taste, texture, and history specifically as drying beans intended for long term storage. Without dried beans, options for protein during the lean months, after the fall harvest and before next year’s crop has matured, would be scarce. Thanks to them, many populations have made it through the winter. Nutrients: dietary fiber, protein, vitamins A and C and riboflavin.
