First introduced in 1897 by Peter Henderson & Company. Black Valentine Beans are cold tolerant, prolific and very dependable. Shiny black seed in 6-inch pods. A great dual purpose variety; bush habit, snap or dry. (50-55 days)

Each packet contains approximately 50 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plant directly into rich, fast draining soil in spring after the soil has warmed. Sow 1 inch deep and 2-4 inches apart in rows 18-24 inches apart. Soaking 1-2 hours prior to planting will speed germination. Thin when seedlings emerge so that bush varieties are 5 to 6 inches apart; pole varieties 6 to 8 inches apart.

Pick often to keep plants productive; when harvesting immature pods you encourage new blossoms to form. Look for firm, sizable pods and pinch off with your thumbnail and fingers.
