This soup bean was brought to North America from Austria in the 1870’s by the Hutterite Christians. This delicious creamy, buttery flavored bean is great for soups. This plant is a bush variety but can grow up to 3′ tall, typically not requiring support. Heavy producer, with pods reaching 7″ long and up to 7 beans per pod.
Sow seeds directly outdoors in full sun 1″ deep, and space 6″ apart, after all chance of frost has past and ground is warm. Do not over fertilize or plant will produce heavy foliage with few flowers/pods.
