Organic Macuzalito Bush-Bean Seeds
Organic Macuzalito Bush-Bean Seeds will produce small, red dry beans that are the result of a participatory plant-breeding program in the mountains of Honduras. They are named after the highest mountain in the region. These seeds are locally grown and harvested in Ontario. The plants are bush in habit and are covered with pods bearing very tasty small red beans which have a short cook time. Red beans and rice anyone?
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.
