Bean, Mayocoba Bush (Phaseolus vulgaris), packet of 20 seeds, organic


Family: Legume (Fabacea)

Annual.  85 days from pushing seed into soil to harvest in dry-bean stage.

(Peruvian Bean, Peruano, Canary Bean, Canario, Mexican Yellow Bean)  Native to Peru, this is one of the most compact bean plants I have ever grown–truly a bush bean, making a dense crown of long, thin, usually 6-seeded pods that mature quickly.  I imagine this would be a very good choice for container planting and small gardens, or for row-cropping in larger gardens.  The bean itself is small–similar in size to a navy bean–and yellow or ivory in color.  Cooked, these beans are mild-flavored, buttery and creamy.  They are traditionally used in re-frieds.  These beans will appreciate a fertile soil in the full sun and regular watering.  They do not require a trellis.  Space plants a foot apart.
