Half-runner, 85 days. Here’s another Dakota variety, so you know it’s rugged! This one comes from the Hidatsa people of the upper Missouri River Valley; was introduced in Oscar Will’s Pioneer Indian Collection of seeds in 1915. Plump rose-red beans for dry use; plants climb only 3 feet or so.

What are the pros? Matures early, productive

What are the cons? rotten in pod, off color

Review:

I bought these because I wanted a red bean. When cooked they turn lavender/pink. The beans mature super early and are very productive.. Vines are short, only 3-4 feet, but they still need a trellis. I made the mistake of letting them grow on the ground and any beans close to the ground (i.e. almost all of them) rotted. Too tough to eat as a green bean, and flavor/texture as a dry or shell bean is just ok.

What are the pros? just drop in & grow

What are the cons? not offered in larger quantity

Review:

We planted just one envelope of these & got a pound back to plant for next year. If approx. 50 beans produce a pound...all we can say is WOW. Would like an option for larger purchase so we could get a chance to try them as well as save seed for next year.

What are the pros? Pretty, easy picking, thrifty

What are the cons? None

Review:

I thought these beans were doing poorly - stunted, never bloomed - so I went to pull the row out. As I was pulling them out, I was amazed to find a heavy crop of dried beans. The beans had survived in a nearly pure sand soil that had not been amended in at least 5 years. I'm going to buy more packs next year because I can't wait to see how they do with proper soil!

Review:

Great bean, they've set an impressive amount of pods in a very short amount of time. I have them sandwiched between a 4th trellis and a row of golden giant amaranth. They have reached the top of the trellis and many of the amaranth as well, which are already approaching 6 ft. Some have even managed to secure the amaranth to the trellis, which has been a great asset with all the high wind we've had here this year. So far this bean has been more than productive enough. I'm looking forward to collecting many more green beans, and plan to collect as many dried beans as I can.
