Good Mother Stallard Bean

         
 
20 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
Pole, 85-90 days. Gorgeous, plump maroon-and-white beans are great in soups, where their creamy texture and hearty, nutty flavor really shine. Generations of gardeners have grown this pole variety that yields 5-6 beans per pod—outstandingly productive! Originally introduced by our friend Glenn Drowns. Superior in baked beans, and also makes a fine shell bean.

What are the pros? Immensely productive, gorgeous

What are the cons? None

Review:

Extremely vigorous plant in our garden, quickly scrambled up a 8' bean tower and then began twining on itself to grow even taller. It's true that for the longest time you won't see any flowers, but the plant itself as a climber is so gorgeous that you won't mind. When the flowers do begin, look forward to a huge yield of gorgeous beans per plant. We planted our seeds out in early May (it was a warm spring here) and had our first flowers arrive in August. The plant was at its maximum height for the year before we even saw a bud. This may have been delayed slightly as some doves nipped the tops of some of the early sprouters. End of September the majority of the beans were dry on the bush, but even now as the leaves turn brown we're *still* finding green pods developing and even the odd flower blooming. Pods usually had 4-6 beans per. So excited to double the number of bean towers for next year, and have them all covered with this variety again. Would enthusiastically recommend.

Review:

We fell in love with mother Stallard beans two years ago and this year grew them in abundance. Love them in vegetable soup cooked in organic chicken broth with ham hock. This year I may have six pints dried to store for soups this winter.

Not a single bean

What are the pros? Grew Fast, Great Germination

What are the cons? No Beans, Alot of Flowers

Review:

The title pretty much says it all. I planted the whole seed packet up my corn, and while 99% germinated and grew vigorously, we never got a single bean this year. Not even one baby one. Not sure what happened, but maybe it was too hot for them? Dont know. I might have one or two seeds left to try out, so maybe ill do that. Pity. The beans are so beautiful too.

What are the pros? Tastes great! Beautiful

What are the cons? Quickly died in 95*heat

Review:

I am going to try to grow them again when I plant for the fall. Our growing season here in Central GA is quite long. By early July all the Good Mother Stallard plants were dead. I will also try them in the early spring with my peas to see if they fair better.

Review:

This was my first time growing vining beans to dry. I only planted a dozen seeds as an experiment. I harvested slightly over a pound of dry beans! I used them in minestrone, and they were amazing. I forgot to soak them overnight, so I boiled them in a separate pan until they were done, changing the water a couple times. Then added them to my soup. Beautiful, excellent flavor and texture. I can't wait to plant them again this year, I will plant a lot more!
