How to plant:
ROWS 36”-48" Apart
Skill Level-Easy
Arikara Yellow: 80-90 days. Yellow –tan
seeds with red-brown eye rings. Prolific
plants, good drought tolerance. Great
for use as a baking bean.

white seeds with contrasting eye.
Heavily produced on strong 15” plants.
Jacob’s Cattle Gasless: 70-75 days.

early green bean. Excellent flavor, good
for freezing and canning. 5”-8” bean.

Green Thumb Tip
As a precaution for seed saving, it is a
good idea to put ten feet between
different varieties if you can.
Harvesting the seed:
Leave some beans on the plant for
about six weeks after they ripen. If the
seed rattles in the pod, the pods are
brown and dry, and almost all the
leaves are off the plant, the seed is
ready. Pull up or cut the entire plant
and hang upside down in a cool place
for about two weeks. To thresh beans,
put them in a plastic bag and stomp on
them or beat against a hard surface.
Separate the beans from the remaining
pods and chaff by pouring from one
container to another.
The Waupaca Seed Library
is a circulating collection of
seeds hosted by the Waupaca
Area Public Library.
The seeds are available to
anyone with the intention of
growing and collecting new
seed to be returned to the
library for other patrons.
The goal is to have
borrowers collect seed to
make available to the public
for planting the following
year to continue the cycle.
