I had never planted dry beans before and was shocked to see how many beans so few seeds produced. I planted about 50 bean seeds and got almost a gallon of dry beans. Great taste

We've tried a variety of dry beans - the black beans are the most predictably good - easiest to shell, consistently beautiful beans and taste delicious. We argue about which other varieties to try - but always agree on these black beans. I'm amazed at how hardy the plants are.
