Bean, Hopi Yellow (Phaseolus vulgaris) packet of 10 seeds, organic

$2.95

Family:  Legume (Fabaceae)

Annual. 55 days to green beans, 90 days to dry beans.

Deep golden yellow bean of the Hopi Indians.  May be eaten as a green bean in early pod stage. I showed a picture of the green beans in the pot on the stove–they were quite good and stringless.   This is a running bean that grows best with regular garden culture, fertile soils in the full sun.   Plant 5 seeds per hill, about 1 inch deep.  Germ in a week in warm soils.  Plant is typified by fast, vigorous growth.  Give plenty of water during growing phase and then stop watering to finish.

    Hi! How far will these beans “run”, and will they “strangle” or crawl on other plants they encounter? Thank you

      Hi Linea, If you’re concerned about the yellow beans running over other plants, then like you said you can trellis them, but actually runners are supposed to be allowed to run free. Yes, they can overcome other plants within a 10 foot radius or so. But then, that’s how they make their bean! Richo

    Several years ago I grew these as part of my “three sisters” garden. Although I tries a few varieties, these were by far the most vigorous here in Ohio.
