Good Mother Stallard Bean

         
 
10 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.

Review:

Hi, I have been growing this bean for awhile now here in NJ. I love these beans. I first eat them as snap beans when the beans are just filling out the pods. They are stringless,tender,and delicious with a sweet,full flavor. I cook them in veggie broth with onions and garlic,and some seasonings. I also let some get to the yellow pod stage and use as shellies,or let them dry and use for soups or stews. They are a very vigorous and care free bean. They just merrily climb up to 12 feet or more if allowed to do so. Here they will keep going till frost just putting out more beans.

Review:

I bought and grew this bean last year, I wanted to add dry beans to the garden. I just let the beans go until October but had to pull the vines up due to the wet fall we had put the whole plant in the garage to let the pods dry out. I made a soup with them they were the best tasting bean I have ever had. The texture is really good creamy not like your typical navy, northern bean. Worth the wait and work.

What are the pros? A vine that keeps on giving!

What are the cons? 90 days to maturity

Review:

Just wanted to post one final review for the end of the season: it is almost the second week of September and I am still harvesting many mature yellow Good Mother Stallard pods, with many more immature green ones waiting their turn. I do not know when this vine will stop producing but it doesn't look like it will stop any time soon! Some final tips: Do not get discouraged if you don't see any pod development in mid to late summer, this is a 90 day variety and will not start pod formation until the weather cools off. Do not underestimate how tall or wide Good Mother Stallard will grow, it will soon wrap around anything that happens to be nearby and grow to 10 feet. Finally, use the photo above for reference of when to pick. If the pods are still a little green, tough to open and the beans are have a green tinge they need more time should they be wanted for drying or fresh eating. Best of luck to you!

What are the pros? Prolific, beautiful

What are the cons? Long wait, but worth it

Review:

I am just now starting to harvest the pods as they dry on the vines. It was a long wait, but worth it. The beans are absolutely gorgeous! These guys definitely need a lot of support. I built 6-foot trellises out of electrical conduit supported by rebar driven into the ground. The vines grew right over the top of the trellises and are so heavy they are pulling them over. My neighbor thought they were grape vines. Lovely, though, and I will grow again!

What are the pros? Best dry bean

What are the cons? long time to mature but its ok

Review:

Last weekend at long last the first Good Mother Stallard pods were mature enough to be picked, about three months from the time of transplanting. With Good Mother Stallard one must wait for the vines to undergo their natural cycle and only when the pods become yellow and feel like paper are the beans ready to be dried. Is this a variety that can give two plantings in one season? No, and that is not the point. Patience and time is what reflects this variety, which will reward you with excellent yields overall. To continue from the first review posted, Good Mother Stallard will quickly outgrow a standard bamboo pyramid, next year I will use 8 foot 1x1" posts and treat it as a semi-runner, although I fear even this will not contain the vigorous, lengthy central vines and side runners. Pods are short and compact with between 5-6 beans per pod. The beans are round, almost globe shaped and very dense with great patterns. I can't wait until they are finished drying to try them in chili.
