Product Information

(Phaseolus lunatus)  - Organic - AusQual Certified - Grown at Greenpatch Organic Seeds

Madagascar bean is a perennial climber to 2 metres, wiry growth with red & white coloured seeds. Young pods steamed and seeds used as a dry soup bean when mature.

How to Grow

Climbing beans as their name indicates need a structure for them to climb on. This can be anything from a wire fence, verandah or teepee made from tomato stakes, bamboo or even sturdy sticks. They like soil rich in organic matter but they are a legume so ensure nitrogen levels are not to high. Sow your seeds below the climbing structure to give the tendrils a easy job of latching on. Ensure you do not over water them during the germination stage as this may cause rotting. Once germinated provide a good mulch later around the plant. During the growing season you may need to assist the plant with latching onto your structure.

Pests are minimal for Madagascar bean.

Sow spring & summer direct into garden.

Packet contains approx 5 seeds.

Occasionally handles mild frost.

180 days to harvest

Uses

Eat bean pods whole when young cooked in boiling water. This variety is also used as a dry bean - Allow the green pods to turn brown on the plant then harvest and using basic seed cleaning equipment such as screens, fans and buckets you can seperate the seed for future use.
