Organic Black-Coco Bush-Bean Seeds

Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Black-Coco Bush-Bean seeds take 95 days to maturity (dry). It is a very early, very productive dry bean. Black Coco has a robust flavor and plump, black beans that cook down to a dark chocolate-brown colour. A favorite for soup beans and no slouch in the refried bean department. Compact plants germinate well in cool soil and produce heavy yields of pods bearing 5-6 beans. Eat as a snap bean when young or allow pods to dry on the plant then shell out to eat right away or store for winter use.

Planting Instructions

Direct seed bush beans into well drained soil in full sun once the soil has warmed above 16 degrees Celsius. Sow 2.5 cm deep with the eye facing down and space plants 5-7 cm apart in rows 45-90 cm apart. A good quality compost or organic fertilizer will increase production. Pick frequently or sow fresh seed every 2 weeks until mid summer to ensure a continuous supply of tender beans. To harvest dry bean, allow pods to dry to a crisp and shell out the beans. They are dry enough to store when seed coats can not be dented with your fingernail.
