Taylor's Dwarf Horticultural Bean Seed Pack
Taylor's Dwarf Horticultural Bean: Phaseolus vulgaris
Taylor's dwarf horticultural bean is an heirloom bush bean. It was first introduced to the United States during the Colonial period.
The plants produce beautiful red-and-cream colored seed pods that contain tan seeds accented with splashes of dark red. Taylor's dwarf bean can be eaten immature as a snap bean but most commonly is eaten as a green shell bean. Plants grow 1½' tall and 2' wide.
Beans grow best in full sun with moist, well-drained soil. Once spring soil temperatures are 65°F or warmer, soak beans in water for a couple of hours. Then, direct sow beans into the garden, 2-3" apart and 1" deep. Thin plants to 6" apart. 68 days for green beans. 100+ days for dry beans.
