Description
Black beans are native to North, South, and Central America. Their origins have been traced to many locations in Mexico, as well as Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Today, black beans are cultivated and enjoyed worldwide in many different types of cuisines.

Among all groups of food commonly eaten worldwide, no group has a more health-supportive mix of protein-plus-fibre than legumes. A single one-cup serving of this legume will provide you with 60% of our WHFoods recommended fibre intake and 30% of our WHFoods recommended protein intake. Legumes are the only food group that can provide you with such a strong fibre-protein combination.

A single, one-cup serving of black beans gives nearly 15 grams of fibre and over 15 grams of protein. It’s low glycemic index rating comes from the resistant starch content of black beans. On the protein front, recent studies show black beans to contain unique peptide components (small sequences of amino acids that are used to form proteins) that further improve regulation of blood sugar and insulin levels.

These seeds are 100% organic with no pesticides, treatments or artificial fertilizers used in their production. They are farmed locally. Usually, these peas might be sprayed with something to get rid of pests and heat treated before sale to the public, that will often kill the living part of the seed, so you need to get untreated seed to grow these.

Grow Notes
Once established Black beans don’t need as much water. Only water them when the soil is dry, or they appear wilted. Black beans are incredibly easy to take care of, they are kind of no-nonsense plants. Plant them direct, water them occasionally, give them sunshine and they’ll grow without any additional help. You can grow these in the ground or in containers – both are great!

Sow
Black bean seeds germinate more easily if you prep them by soaking them for a few hours or overnight. Soak your beans in clean water for at least 2 hours before planting. Plant with eyes facing downwards, 2.5cm deep, in a sunny spot once the soil temp reaches 15°C in Spring. Space 10-15cms apart and keep soil moist as they begin to sprout and while young.

Germination
Your beans should germinate in 10-14 days.

Maturity
They will reach maturity in about 100 days.
