Bean Seeds

Easy to Grow, Nutritious, and Great for the Soil!

Versatile, easy to grow and packed with fiber, protein (including the amino acid lysine) and numerous other nutrients, beans can produce all summer and may be eaten fresh or stored for many months. Thriving in the garden or containers, beans are grown in two ways: vining (pole bean seeds) or mounding (bush bean seeds), boasting an array of colors, flavors, shapes and sizes. The three main bean groups are snap or string (eaten pod and all), green bean seeds (intended to be eaten young) and dry bean seeds (meant to be eaten after the seeds inside have dried out).

There are lots of bean varieties available. Plant your favorite but leave room to try new-to-you-bean varieties too. Most gardeners are familiar with green beans and yellow beans, but did you ever try a purple bean? Another variation is a flat bean. There are so many varieties that you shouldn’t just grow what you know. What’s the fun in that?

Plus, bean seeds are one of the easiest to plant and easy to grow in  the vegetable garden. The large bean seeds will germinate dependably if planted after the last frost. Pole bean and bush bean plants need full sun to be their most productive. The plants grow quickly to give large crops of delicious beans. Choose bush bean seeds if you prefer plants that don’t require support. Plant pole bean seeds if you prefer a vining type of plant, which is perfect for space-saving vertical planting. Enjoy your beans either fresh from the garden or preserve them by freezing, drying or pressure canning for fabulous flavor all year long.

There’s nothing you can’t do or make with beans, so buy every variety you love and a few you want to try today from Park Seed.
