Growing Instructions

Bush habit. Direct sow after frost. Succession sow every 3 weeks until 8-10 weeks before first fall frost in order to have fresh, high-quality beans all season. Dragon's Tongue Bean does not require exceptionally fertile soil; average garden soil will do. Harvest when pods are just starting to reveal the shape of the beans inside. Or, allow bean pods to ripen fully and harvest the dry beans for use in soups and stews.
