Swedish Brown Bean
Availability: Available Unavailable
Species: Phaseolus vulgaris
Days to Maturity: 90
(90 days) Small, round brown bean with a mellow flavor. Traditionally used in Swedish sweet and sour bean stew (made with molasses and vinegar), and we enjoy it in Boston baked beans. Brown beans have been a staple in Sweden for hundreds of years. Though they were once grown in several areas of the country, Öland, an island off the south-east coast, is now the only place where they are still grown.
Prepare the planting bed by using a garden fork or lightly till ground to loosen the soil. Plant when soil temperature is around 60F. Mix in a 1-inch layer of mature compost. Plant seeds 1 inch deep and 2 to 4 inches apart. Thin beans to 6 inches apart. Harvest when pods are dry and tan in color.
