Henderson's Black Bean
FREE SHIPPING in the contiguous 48 United States

Introduced in 1897 by Peter Henderson and Company, this high yielding snap bean is easy to grow and produces 5- to 7-inch pods with shiny black seeds. Meaty and full of flavor, they’re great fresh or dried! (53 days)

Each packet contains approximately 40-60 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.
