The Q&A Archives: Growing Kidney Beans

Question: I'd like to grow kidney beans, since chile is very popular with my family. However, I can't find information on cultivation or yields. What yield can I expect from a fifteen foot row?

Answer: I would reckon well less than a pound per 15 feet. Unfortunately, growing beans for drying takes a lot of garden space to get enough to do much with. Kidney beans are grown the same as any other kind of bean but can only be picked once, take a very long time to mature (about 100 days) and must be harvested dry or they will rot in storage. To grow them in a fifteen foot row would be sort of impractical -- but a fun project!
