Last year I decided to try something new to me and plant beans for drying. I started with 4 different varieties, including the Calypso Bean. I had great germination and great yield. The beans are fun with their exceptional coloring, and taste good too! They were simple to grow, and dried on the plant. My young kids and I had a blast shelling them. I will definitely be planting more this year!
