50 ‘Light Red’ Kidney Bean Seeds

Phaseolus vulgaris

Non-GMO, Organic, Heirloom, Open Pollinated

Light Red Kidney Beans are sturdy little plants, suited for almost any garden. The plants grow to about 18-20 inches tall and 8 inches wide. An easy to grow bean, the bean pods mature to a green color but are best left to dry on the vine for use as dry beans. The little red kidney-shaped beans have a creamy texture and mild flavor and are widely used in cuisines such as chili, soups, or baked beans (Bush’s Baked Beans anyone?).

Direct sow bean seeds into your garden in the spring or after your last frost and when soil temperatures are at least 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Optimal temperatures for germination are 75-95 degrees Fahrenheit.
