An old heirloom that has been grown for over 150 years. The plants of Black Turtle bean seeds are semi-runners, meaning they grow on bushes that benefit from some support. These tasty soup beans turn from black to dark brown when cooked. Popular for black bean soup, widely grown from Southwest US to Cuba, and down into South America, but will also be productive in the north. This bean is disease resistant, heat resistant, and hardy. Plant a 100 foot row of Black Turtle Drying bean seeds and expect to harvest 80 to 100 lbs of fresh seeds.
