Description: A small bush bean (dwarf and dry) with yellow flowers, which produces numerous thin bean pods. The beans are small in size and a reddish brown colour. Adzuki beans have been grown in Asia for centuries and are very popular in Japan. They are great in stews and soups. Gail was given these beans around 2007 and has been growing them successfully in Northland since then. They appear to cope well with varying weather conditions including droughts and wet summers.
Planting Instructions: Sow into seed trays when ground has warmed in Spring. Transplant at 10cm diagonal spacing when second leaves appear. This will avoid problems with birds, slugs, and snails.
