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.

Did Well in A Horrible Plot

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!
