Pinto Beans (28g):
High in protein, these small speckled brown beans are the most popular dry shell beans for winter use! Pinto beans are commonly used in Mexican cuisine and great when used for refried beans! Young pods may also be eaten as green snap bean. Average: 85 days.

Detailed planting instructions:
Beans are generally direct seeded in the garden. The most important point about growing green beans is not to plant them too early. They will rot in cool, damp soil. To get an earlier start, you can put down black plastic to warm the soil. When bush beans begin producing they often come in all at once. Staggered planting, every 2 weeks, will keep your bush beans going longer. Beans like a moderately rich soil with a slightly acidic pH of about 6.0 to 6.2. They prefer a loose, moist soil. Plant after all danger of frost is past. Pole beans will need some type of support to grow on. Be sure the trellis, teepee, fence or whatever is in place before you seed. Plant seeds at a rate of about 3-6 seeds per teepee or every 6 inches apart.

Harvesting beans is an ongoing process. You can start to harvest anytime, but gardeners usually wait until the beans begin to firm up and can be snapped. They are generally about as think as a pencil then. Don't wait too long, because beans can become overgrown and tough almost overnight. Harvest by gently pulling each bean from the vine or by snapping off the vine end, if you are going to be using the beans right away.

Saving Seeds:
It is a suggested that you earmark a couple of plants at the beginning of the season for seed saving. Don't pick ANY pods from them to eat - just pick the crisp brown pods at the end of the season. Don't feed them, or water them unless it is very dry - as this can encourage leafy growth rather than pod development. There is no point in picking green pods as the seeds are not mature enough at this stage.

Reviewer: Regeana Beshears from Skiatook, OK United States  
You can't hardly find these to plant. And if you buy fresh pinto from a farmers market they are almost 5.00 a lb

Bush or Pole? June 27, 2016
Reviewer: from Oroville, WA United States  
The plants seem strong and healthy. There really needs to be a better description as to whether these are bush or pole beans though or at least give the specific variety of pinto so one could look it up. Looking through the reviews I found one person who said they were bush. I will say that they are bigger than any bush beans I have ever grown before and are latching on to the onions I planted about 2.5 feet away. I am just getting ready to put in some type of barrier to protect the onions.
