These are grown by my friend Jenelle of Nanoose Creek Farmhouse.

This Rose Bean is a prolific producer of both green beans and dried beans. It's a semi-vine, so mostly grows as a bush but grows some longer vines as well. Plants will benefit from a low trellis or stakes.

The dried beans have a background of light or dark rosy pink, with light pink speckles.

We can't find much info about this bean other than the description from Russ Crow's 'A Bean Collector's Window':
"Bush/Dry Early and productive. 85 days to first dry 4-5.5 inch pods. Original bean named and introduced through the Seed Savers Exchange by the late Robert Lobitz of Paynesville, Minnesota around 2001."

Growing Instructions

Direct sow 1" deep mid-May to late July in southwest BC after all danger of frost has passed about 4" apart. Provide a low trellis or poles for the short vines to grow up. Harvest the green beans when young, or wait until the pods dry down for dry beans. Can be grown in containers.

Shipping in Canada 

We ship seeds in Canada via regular letter mail, which is an untracked service, and usually takes 1-2 weeks to arrive. Larger bulbs and plants are sent via tracked flat rate box.


Shipping to the US

We ship all US orders by tracked packet and they usually take two weeks to arrive.

According to the USDA, most seeds require an import permit to be brought into the US and the permit is free and useable for multiple orders/years. The package will list the contents as "Garden Seeds". In our experience shipping seeds over several years, most small orders will make it across the border without issues, but occasionally they will be held at US Customs. 

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the required import permit and Cicada Seeds will not be responsible for any orders held or confiscated by US customs.
