Also called Hidatsa Indian Red, this variety was originally grown by the Hidatsa tribe in the Missouri River Valley of North Dakota. In 1915, it was introduced to commerce in Oscar Will’s Pioneer Indian Collection of seeds. The dark-red seeds are reminiscent of kidney beans, and the productive, sprawling bush plants will climb to 3′ if given support. Bush habit, dry, 80-100 days. ±1,300 seeds/lb
Instructions – Sow seeds outdoors after danger of frost has passed and soil and air temperatures have warmed. Harvest snap beans frequently for increased yields. Leave some pods on the vine and harvest when completely mature for dry beans.
