Black Valentine Bush Bean

Black Valentine Bush Bean


Phaseolus vulgaris


50-55 days to maturity


This snap bush bean variety is listed by Seed Savers Exchange as a great dual purpose bean meaning great eating in the green bean stage as well as the dry bean stage.  What a great combination!  I found them less sweet than other varieties picked raw from the garden but as a steamed or cooked bean they were great.  They are tolerant of cold weather and very prolific. The dry bean is large, black, and cooks up well.


One ounce packet contains ~60 seeds
