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.

"Never mind about 1066 William the Conqueror, 1087 William the Second. Such things are not going to affect one’s life… but 1932 the Mars Bar and 1936 Maltesers and 1937 the Kit Kat – these dates are milestones in history and should be seared into the memory of every child in the country."

-- Roald Dahl (Welsh novelist. 13 September 1916 – 23 November 1990)
