Beans have been one of the most important vegetable crops through the ages, a vital staple in many cultures. One of the necessary components of the Three Sisters grown by Native Americans, beans, corn and squash, were grown together supporting and complementing each other. Grown for either use as green beans or dry beans their nutrient value varies depending upon their use.

Dry beans are high in protein, a great source of fiber, are naturally fat, sodium, and cholesterol-free, and are a good source of folate, thiamine, iron and magnesium . Green or “snap or string” beans are an excellent source of multiple nutrients, including: vitamins like vitamin A, C, K, B6, and folic acid and minerals such as calcium, silicon, iron, manganese, potassium, and copper. Dry beans are also the one protein source you can keep for a long time without processing.

Beans are one of the easiest vegetables to grow in the home garden, so are a popular crop for beginners to try out. Today, with so many bean varieties available, they certainly get the “most versatile” award for the home garden. No matter what kind of bean you grow, you’re bound to be happy with the bountiful  harvest. Click Here for complete Heirloom Bean planting instructions.

St. Clare Heirloom Seeds are proud signers of The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.” ×
