It is incredible how quickly life grabs hold. This tray of black turtle beans placed in the seed incubator only 72 hours earlier developed into seedlings rapidly. The seedlings, once fully grown, yielded approximately 1440 beans. The average return for beans is 120:1. These cultivars of black turtle beans are bush types yielding up to five pounds from every 10-foot row planted.
