Fort Portal Jade Bean

1 Review | Write a Review
Amazing jewel-toned green beauties! Dried beans are a glassy blue-green color--unlike anything we have seen before, so stunning! Plants are extremely productive— they flourished both in the greenhouse and outdoors in the garden. Color will not fully develop until the beans are completely dried. Introduced several years ago by our Canadian friends at Richters Seeds, and collected by Joseph Simcox in a market at Fort Portal, Uganda.

What are the pros? Good germination & productive

What are the cons? none


Im always interested when Baker Creek introduces a new bean. This one was a winner.Have been harvesting as they dry on the vine & shelling when pods are crackling.Sturdy plants,abundant,beans taste good. Aren't blue-green, more dark green-grey. Real climbers, need tall support, don't plant too close. We planted 1 pkg for an 8 foot row, germination was high enough that vines were crowded & needed to be spread out for air circulation. ( we use hog panels for pole beans) Growing conditions: Zone 5b-6, (southeast Ohio), amended clay soil, good drainage, above normal rains/heat/humidity.planted 2nd week of June, harvest for dry beans started 3rd week of August & continuing until 2nd week of September.. Average 4-5 per pod, showed good disease resistance in a Summer full of blights, powdery mildew, voracious bugs, you name it. Will grow more these next year.
