(a.k.a. Stringless Black Valentine)

(Phaseolus vulgaris) 48-70 days.    Dry or Snap Bean    The Henderson Black Valentine Heirloom Bean dates back to 1897, when introduced by Peter Henderson & Co. by crossing "Pencil-Pod Black Wax" and "Black Valentine". Kidney-type bean, tall spreading "half-runner" type, 16-36" plants produce dark green, slender, 6 - 6 ½" pods, with lovely jet black seeds. Henderson Black Valentine makes an excellent snap bean, with tasty pods, stringless at every stage, also great for dry soup beans. Hardy under adverse conditions, resistant to bean mosaic. Drought tolerant.



Planting Instructions for Henderson Black Valentine Bean Seeds


Sow Heirloom / Open Pollinated Henderson Black Valentine beans 1-2" deep, 2-6" apart, in rows 18-36" apart, in full sun after danger of frost. Soaking bean seeds in water 1-2 hours before planting speeds germination. Henderson Black Valentine germination occurs in 4-16 days in soil 60-85°F. Provide support for heirloom pole bean varieties. For heirloom snap beans, harvest when beans are 3-6" long. For Henderson Black Valentine dry beans, leave pods on plants until pods are dry, brown, and crisp, and beans are hard and rattle in pod, if more drying is needed when danger of frost has arrived, pick pods or pull entire plant and hang upside down to dry further.
