Hutterite Soup Bush Bean

Bush, 70 days. This variety is revered for making fabulous soups, having a rich creamy texture and fine flavor. The seeds are an ivory color and the bush plants are productive. The variety was grown and preserved by the Hutterite Christians, who follow the teachings of Jakob Hutter, their Austrian leader. They emigrated to North America in the 1870s, and still have colonies in several Canadian provinces and northern US states.

What are the pros? Super tasty and easy to cook

What are the cons? Lower yield

Review:

I wanted to write a review because after purchasing this seed, I read the reviews that said to prepare a trellis. I did, and they remained a bush, except for about 3 tendrils. We are in Zone 3. I was looking for something to alternate with the Red Hidatsa beans, but found this to yield much, much less. We had a very wet spring, and my plants looked destroyed until about late June when they burst back to life. I will probably try them again this year because they are so tasty and cooking is a breeze. You can throw them in a pot without a pre-soak and it only takes about 2 hours.

Review:

The first year I tried these, the deer ate most of them. I saved enough seed to try a crop this past year, after installing deer fencing, and had a large crop of very tasty soup beans. They stay bushy in my area (zone 5, high desert).

Not remotely a bush bean...

What are the pros? Nice healthy plants

What are the cons? NOT a bush, is a climber

Review:

The title for this bean is misleading. It is not remotely a bush bean. It is climbing all over the place. I'm just letting it spread out as I didn't plan for a trellis. It keeps wanting to take over neighboring plants. Very healthy plants though and I'm excited to see what they taste like.

Review:

I double checked that this bean was a bush bean before purchasing the seeds but what plants that did come up are sending our runners. I guess they need to be relabled. Also out of a entire package of new seed I only got 6 plants. We are having an amazing growing season this year. I bought another package from the farm store and now I have loads of bean plants

Review:

Mine didn't have sufficient support, unfortunately, and a lot of the beans that were close to the ground, sprouted in their pods - we've had a very wet summer. We just used our entire yield in one pot of soup. It was admittedly delish... I'll definitely grow them again next year, but this time with a trellis.
