mbombo green bean
Weather is an important consideration when planting pole beans. Beans do not transplant well and do best when directly sown into the garden.
A beautiful green multi-purpose bean from Africa. Named after a tribal god, Mbombo, who created the world, it is said to bring prosperity to the soil and to the people. Drought and heat tolerant, with a pole habit. The dry beans are a surprising emerald color and are great for soups. The young pods may also be used as a green bean. Pods grow 5-6” long.
All of our plants are grown right here on our farm in Hendricks county without any chemical intervention. Seeds saved from plants grown locally will grow and produce better then plants grown in foreign environments with different soil, weather and moisture then what we have here. All of the seed that we grow and sell are from non-hybrid heirloom varieties that are all non gmo and open pollinated.
Sow the seeds when soil temperatures are around 60 degrees F. (16 C.), and the ambient air has warmed to at least the same temperature. Most varieties require 60 to 70 days to first harvest and are normally harvested at least five times during the growing season. How to Plant Pole Beans Sow the seeds 4 to 8 inches (10-20 cm.) apart in rows that are 24 to 36 inches (61-91 cm.) apart in rows. Push the seeds 1 inch (2.5 cm.) and lightly brush soil over them. When planting them in hills, sow four to six seeds at even intervals around the hill. Water after planting until the top 2 to 3 inches (5-8 cm.) of soil are damp. Germination should take place in eight to ten days.
I wasted all of the time growing these to find out that they were not what was represented. They do not even taste good. My money back would not even come close to the time and effort taken to grow them.
