The Royal Burgundy Bush Bean, Phaseolus vulgaris. This variety is a bush bean that makes very dark red almost black bean pods. It is considered stringless which is for fresh eating but we found its best when cooked. It is a semi flat round pod about 5 inches long with about 6 beans per pod. The plant will produce a medium sized pinkish bean which is great for long term storage. The plants can get to 3 feet tall and need good staking to keep them off the floor when they get loaded with bean pods. Its a great all around bush bean that will work in any growing zone. 75 to 120+days or till first frost

    Culture: Legumes have moderate fertility needs. Go easy on the nitrogen. Excessive nitrogen may induce some varieties to develop vines in moist hot weather. Tender, will not survive frost. Plant 3–4 seeds/ft. in rows 24–30" apart. Pick frequently for maximum yields, but avoid disturbing foliage in wet weather to prevent spread of fungal diseases. White-seeded beans usually don’t germinate as well as dark-seeded. Minimum germination soil temperature 60°. Optimal range 60–80°. Optimal temperature 77°. Emergence takes 16 days at 59°; only 8 days at 77°. Produce 97% normal seedlings at 77°, but only 47% at 86°.
