Calypso Bean Seeds-30 Seeds


Out of stock

Also known as Orca drying bean. This unusual bi-coloured Mexican heirloom has a creamy texture when cooked, and it looks great on the plate. The plants are relatively compact bushes, growing to only 45cm (18”) tall. The beans are easy to grow and fun to harvest. Plant some Calypso bean seeds in the organic vegetable garden and enjoy the dried beans in soups and stews all winter long. The open-pollinated seeds are easy to harvest and dry for planting the following year.

Sow early in spring as soon as the ground can be worked. Keep soil consistently moist but take care not to overwater. For dry beans, pull entire plants and allow them to after-ripen before processing. Collect seeds from plants with pods that are fully dry, but before pods shatter. Shell by hand or by walking on the dry pods. (This is a great job for children.) Test for dryness with a hammer – dry beans shatter, moist beans squish.
