Lovely, long & skinny bush beans, Appaloosa beans have mottled purple on one end. Beans can be eaten when green and tender, though they are most commonly eaten as a dry bean. Appaloosa beans have a mild flavor and a firm texture that holds its form when fully cooked -- great in soups, chili and casseroles. Named after the Nez Pierce tribe's Appaloosa ponies.
Planting Instructions: Sow Appaloosa Bean seeds directly in the ground 2" deep, 3" apart in spring after all danger of frost has passed. Keep moist until germinated. No trellis needed.
Seed Saving Instructions: Allow pods to fully dry on the vine. Pick dried pods into a bin and crush to dislodge beans. Store beans in a paper or mesh bag to ensure they dry fully and remain dry.
