Black Turtle Bean


Black Turtle is a classic soup bean and can be stored well. This hardy bush type has great disease resistance and does well even in drought and heat.  If picked young, pods can also be used as a snap bean, although primary use is as a dry shell bean. Oval beans are jet black.  Allow beans to dry on plant before harvesting.
