Seed Saving

Beans are amongst the easiest crops to save seed from, you just grow them like dry beans. They are mostly self-pollinating, though insects may cause some cross-pollination. For this reason it is best to have only one variety flowering at a time if possible. Isolate bean varieties a minimum of 25' for home use. For pure seed an isolation distance of 100-150' is required.

Be aware that some viruses may be transmitted through the seed. Try not to gather from diseased plants.

Seed Viability in Years: 3 - 5 Years

Germination Percentage: 75%
