Montezuma Red

95 days — Also known as 'Mexican Red', 'Montezuma Red' bushes reach about fourteen inches tall and tend to sprawl a bit. They are very productive and produce small to medium sized, flattened dark red beans.

An heirloom popular in California since the mid-1800's but fairly rare now. The beans keep their shape well when baked. Each ounce is approximately 80 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Beans prefer well-drained, rich soil in a sunny location. Make sure you keep them well watered in the summer heat.

Beans are a tender vegetable and you should not plant them until all danger of frost has passed and the soil remains above 65ºF. Sow seeds .1-1½ inches deep, every two to three inches. Bush-type beans do not require support.

Allow pods to remain on the plant until they are brittle and open easily. However, if you live in an area with a short growing season, harvest as close to dry as possible and finish drying indoors. Rain and freezing temps will damage beans.
