Phaseolus vulgaris (80-85 days) You'll be gifted with plump red beans, very similar to the kidney bean for use in chili, refried beans, and humus. Originally grown along the Missouri River Valley of North Dakota by the Hidatsa tribe, this bean was introduced by Oscar H. Will & Co. in Bismarck, ND as part of his 1915 Pioneer Indian Collection. Semi-vining, it will climb to three feet if given support. One of the most productive dry beans available for prodigious harvests and long-term storage of high quality, high protein staples.
