Tongue of Fire Bean

Find out how the Tongue of Fire Heirloom bean grew for me in Ohio on this post.  I share a few images featuring this plant I grew from seed.

About the Tongue of Fire Bean

First off, I need to note I did a horrible job at documenting my bean planting this year.  Due to everything going on in the garden and dome I found myself planting more edibles that were heirlooms to save for future years.  One of such vegetables was this Tongue of Fire Bean.  Some of the facts I love about this variety is:

  • It is an heirloom and only takes 60 days in the right conditions to produce.
  • The outside cover of the bean is pretty pink
  • Inside the dry shell the bean is a pretty burgundy and white large bean
  • This heirloom seed can be saved and grown again in the years to come if stored properly.

In The Garden

It is a very pretty plant to grow especially when the beans arrive.  The long pods are a great accent to any vegetable and flower garden.

This was my first year growing this plant by seed and saving them to eat later.


Here are few links I find useful on the subject of Tongue of Fire Beans.  On the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardener I found great information about drying this bean. 

The seed feature on this blog post (images) were originally from my purchase at Pinetree Garden Seed company.
