Coco Black Beans



Coco Black are bush type beans. The plant grows up to 13 inches (33 cm) tall, and produces pink blossoms, then pods 4 inches (10 cm) long; 85 to 115 days from seed.

The beans inside will mature to be 1/2 inch (1 cm) long by 1/3 inch (75 mm) wide, with a glossy black skin, and a rich taste.

When very young, the pods can be harvested to be eaten as a green bean, but this state only lasts for a short while as the pods quickly become stringy and tough.

When left to fully mature, Coco Black Beans are best harvested as a bean for drying.

In the northern hemisphere, the reason for having Zucchini Bread Day now would be to make it at a time when you can appreciate it.
