To produce Black Valentine beans all season, sow a new crop every 7-14 days up to 60 days before first fall frost. Beans should be harvested prior to maturity when they are succulent. It is essential to keep beans picked or plants will stop producing.
When mature, Black Valentine Beans are deep green, long & stringless. If picked very young, they make a flavorful & fresh snap bean and if allowed to dry, the jet-black beans make excellent soup! The flavor is rich & nutty.
Note: These beans do not need staking.
