A hardy heirloom variety that comes from the Hidatsa tribe of North Dakota. Plump red beans are often dried and used in soups and chili — great texture and color! Plants climb up to 3-feet tall and tolerate a wide range of weather conditions. (85 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 blooms to form. Look for firm, sizable pods and pinch off with your thumbnail and fingers.
