Lualualei Pole Bean Seeds

$6.19

Packet

Lualualei is a very good dry bean with smooth light brown seeds that cook up nicely. As a green cooked bean, pick very young to prevent a tough, stringy texture.

35 left

Lualualei is a long flat-podded bean, which grows in clusters. It was used in 60's by UH Manoa and the seed is now hard to find.

Harvest continuously for 6-8 weeks or longer for longer production. Water deeply during dry spells, as beans need constant soil moisture to develop properly. Feed pole varieties, once at planting time and again as beans start to form. Because beans fix Nitrogen when inoculated properly, they should require low Nitrogen. After they flower, apply light Nitrogen, and avoid potassium. Pinch off the growing tips of pole beans when plants reach the top of their support system. Harvest green beans when pods are young and the seeds are not lumpy. If the pods are lumpy or yellowing, the beans are too mature and can be left on the vine and picked later to use as dry beans.

Cultivation:
Depth: 1.5""
Spacing: 6-8""
Full Sun
Days to Maturity: 60-80 days
Open Pollinated
25 Seeds per packet.

Packets are made of paper and need to stay dry and in cool, dark storage.
Store in a cool DRY place with NO moisture or the seeds will sprout!

Hawai‘i Seed Growers Network

The Hawaiʻi Seed Growers Network is a statewide group of artisanal farmers that have worked together over the past 13 years to develop and grow high-quality, locally grown, and adapted seed varieties for Hawai‘iʻs home gardeners and market farmers. Varieties selected for their online marketplace have been tested for multiple years by seed growers on their farms and gardens under Hawai‘i’s unique and diverse, subtropical climatic conditions. Seed growers carefully observe, hand select, and harvest from only the best plants to ensure well-adapted, healthy seeds sprout and grow well in your home garden. All seeds are open-pollinated (OP) varieties that allow you to begin saving your own seed, improving and strengthening these varieties in your home garden. Seeds are properly dried, tested for germination according to USDA standards, and carefully stored to ensure viability at N. Kohala Seed Bank, Nahelehele. Growing tips and seed-saving information are available on the Hawaiʻi Seed Growers Network website through the Blogs and Resource pages at: hawaiiseedgrowersnetwork.com.
