Description
Great Northern Beans are white medium sized beans a bit larger than a navy bean most commonly used for making baked beans and “pork and beans”. Use this bean in any recipe calling for white beans.

Great Northern beans are normally available heat sterilized and dried or cooked with sauce and canned and very less commonly, fresh. The fresh beans are delightful in all sorts of recipes such as soups, stews, salads, stir fries and such.
Our beans have been grown and dried, that’s it. They have not been heat sterilized and will grown an abundance of fresh and healthy beans! They are a bush bean so no trellis is needed although they will benefit from being near a fence or wall or as shown in the pictures, some corn grown in the middle!

Grow Notes
These are climbing beans so the vines will need a medium to climb over; trellis, A-frame or fence are all popular solutions.

Sow directly into a rich soil and keep mulched to improve water retention. When sowing do not allow soil to get too wet as beans can rot.

Pick regularly to encourage more growth. Pods are best eaten when young and tender. Let pods fully mature if growing for dried beans.

Sow
Soaking the beans in water 1-2 hours before planting will speed up the germination time.

Sow direct at 20mm depth spaced 30cm apart in Spring after chances of frost have passed. Rows should be spaced 60cm apart and be in full or part sun, with well-drained soil.

Keep soil moist but never wet or dry.

Germination
4-16 days at 21-26°C

Maturity
65-90 days to maturity, Annual plant.
