Bean 'Soldier' (Bush)

40 seeds. 85 days. Phaseolus vulgaris Dry bean.


Bean 'Soldier' is a mild-tasting baking bean from New England. This heirloom's most interesting feature is the pattern of the red eye of the bean. It looks like the silhouette of a toy soldier standing at attention. Soldier is adapted to cool climates.


Sowing Bush Bean Seeds:
Sow beans outdoors 2 weeks after the last frost date when the soil is warm. Sow 1 inch deep and 3 inches apart in rows spaced 2–3 feet apart. Full sun.
