What are the pros? Easily managable vine system
What are the cons? None at this time
I really enjoyed this variety. Purchased at Comstock Ferre in Wethersfield, CT packed for 2014. For the best germination rates soak whole beans in a cup of water for 2-3 hours prior to planting. This bean grows on very neat and tidy central vines that reach about 12 feet in height. The flowers of this variety are very small white specs that gradually turn yellow, a huge contrast to more showy varieties like Scarlet or Sunset runner. This is of no consequence because it is the wonderful beans we are after, and Snow Cap does an excellent job of producing many pods for each vine. At around 60 days from germination the leaves will begin to turn yellow and the pods will become more pale in color. Do not pick them yet as this variety is best suited as a dry bean. Allow the vines to undergo their natural cycle and eventually the pods will turn pale yellow and have a dry paper feel to them. They are now ready and can be dried, pod and all, and will make a splendid addition to chili or soup.
