Ready, Set, Grow. Taylor Dwarf Horticultural Bush beans alternatively called Wren’s Egg, are speckled with carmine red splotches giving this ornamental seed super magical powers. They taste good, too, sweet right out of their pods, or dried for winter soups and stews. A Landreth’s favorite since 1895.
Plant Information
It's thought that this little bean with a long name originated in Italy in the 1700s. A delicious addition to your favorite soup or chili recipe, the centuries-old Taylor Dwarf Horticultural dry bush bean is quick to mature and enjoys a long shelf life when stored in a dry, cool place. They are a pinkish tan when just picked and then turn to a light brown streaked with burgundy when dry. Bush bean plants grow to be about 2-3 feet in height and yield several pods per plant. They're great for gardens and raised beds, and require fewer nutrients from the soil than other vegetables. When growing dry bush bean varieties, you leave the beans in their shell to dry after the pods reach maturity. Once dry, the beans can be shelled and then stored for a year or more (in a cool, dry place). Taylor Dwarf Horticultural dry bush beans are ideal for use in your favorite soups, chilies, and other hearty recipes. A protein powerhouse, these beans are rich in fiber as well as key vitamins and minerals. They contain isoflavones and phytosterols, said to help prevent and fight cancer. They're also a low-cholesterol, complex carbohydrate. Believe it or not, these beans are equal to foods like eggs and cottage cheese when it comes to packing a lot of powerful protein per serving. And they can also be ground into bean flour, which is naturally gluten-free.
