Red Swan is a productive stringless snap bean with beautiful dark pink pods and pretty pink flowers. Produces high yields of green beans at 55 days and keeps producing all season long. Does not require staking or trellising.

Bred by Robert Lobitz from Minnesota from a cross between a purple snap bean and a pinto bean.

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

Growing Instructions

Direct sow 1" deep mid-May to late July in southwest BC after all danger of frost has passed about 4" apart. Harvest the green beans when young, and keep picking for continuous harvests. Can be grown in containers.

Shipping & Returns

We ship seeds within Canada for a flat fee of $6, United States for $25, and internationally for $25*. Live plants and bulbs can only be shipped within Canada.


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.

Haven't planted yet but so far so good!

The seeds arrived on time in good packaging. They look nice and "fresh" in the packet, if that makes any sense ... I mean they are seeds but I feel like you can kinda tell old vs. recent seeds and these look good! I'm so excited to plant! C'mon spring!
