Crisp, plump and juicy! Dragon’s Tongue Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) is an old French variety that yields attractive 6- to 8-inch cream colored pods with purple stripes. Compact plants are very productive and do not require staking. Bush habit, 55-60 days. Learn about Growing Beans here.

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.
