Good Mother Stallard Bean

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? 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!

Review:

Of the three beans I planted in the university demonstration garden's "Three Sisters" plot, Mother Stallard far outperformed the competition (Cherokee Trail of Tears and an heirloom "Dragon's Tongue" pole bean not sold here), Mother Stallard was by far the most productive over the growing season, producing beans even after I stopped the drip irrigation system in August when the flint corn had matured.

What are the cons? Huge vines!

Review:

We had a very dry hot mid-summer (for the Pacific Northwest, that is - many days in the mid-90s). I planted these in early summer and was worried - they grew and grew, but no pods! The pods didn't appear until August. Then, I planted more in early August, and those developed pods much sooner. It's now mid-October, and I've been harvesting them for the past month, waiting for the pods to become dry and papery on the vine as I want to use them as soup beans this winter. The beans are beautiful: it's a delight to open each pod and discover the colors inside. I will grow these again next year, but ensure that I allow more space for the vines. They did try to take over one corner of the garden and smothered a nearby tomato plant! They grow tall, so next time I will either grow them on the back fence of my garden, or on a tall teepee support.

Review:

I tried these beans for the first time this year. I seeded direct, late - 2 weeks past our last good planting date. We were starting a new garden while building a house, were behind on everything, and had to get something growing! GMS was outstanding despite the late start and barely-amended soil. They sailed through heat, drought (I did water a few times, and eventually mulched with straw) and the first mild frost. Deer ate a lot of leaves once but a loose, high "skirt" of metal hex netting around the teepees stopped them. We had an extended summer, which enabled the plants to pod up well. Very few dried completely on the vine, but all were suitable for green or shelling beans. High points: gorgeous (big!) vines, great yield. As green beans, no strings, and fine eating even when plump. As shelling beans, wonderful taste and texture. The vines & leaves are soft to the touch - other bean plants have irritated my skin. Overall, a splendid, versatile bean! I will grow it forever!
