Flambo Bean Conventional & Organic

BN056

75 days. Flambo is a truly flamboyant bean! Strikingly brilliant, bush-type plants produce purple tinged flowers followed by showy, fuchsia and cream mottled, slightly flattened pods that are 4 inches long. The plump, maroon and white cranberry-type beans share the same ornate mottling, only deeper in tone. A delectable and hearty ingredient for soups, we also found them superb puréed in hummus.

Phaseolus vulgaris Rich and flavorful beans are fiber-packed veggies that promote digestive health and are excellent sources of antioxidants that scavenge free radicals in the body. They are also nitrogen-fixing legumes; beans gather nitrogen from the air and load it into the soil to feed future crops.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of direct seeding.

Culture
• Beans are shallow rooted and can require up to 1/4 inch of water a day during hot weather
• Optimum soil pH is 5.5-6.5, mildly acidic
• Apply 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 10 row feet, and 1 inch of compost
• Coat seed with inoculant to increase yields

Direct Sowing
• One ounce of seed sows 10-20 row feet
• Grow Pole, Runner, and Yard Long beans on trellises

Insects & Diseases
Common insects: Mexican bean beetles and bean weevils
Insect control: Pyrethrin or Azatrol
Common diseases: See chart below
Disease prevention: Avoid wetting the foliage, remove plants at end of the year, 3-4 year crop rotation

Harvest & Storage
• Days to maturity are for the fresh shell stage
Shelling beans: Pick when fully formed but still soft and green
Dry beans: Harvest mature beans before pods begin to shatter in the field
• If weather prevents field drying, pull plants and dry inside on a tarp, turning pile daily for even drying
To thresh dry beans: When material is brittle dry, place material in bag and swing against a hard surface, or beat with a stick or rake on a tarp
• Make sure beans are fully dry, then store in a cool place
• Bean weevils may be eliminated by freezing the seed near 0°F for 2 weeks
