Can you provide some instruction for this SeedZoo seed?
Torkuviahe Bean is a member of the Phaseolus vulgaris family. Therefore, this plant can be grown in a manner suitable for beans in general. Sow the seed in a prepared garden bed directly. The quality of the soil does not have to be high, but the area should not be wet for long periods of time, rather well drained in porosity. Place the seeds about one inch deep, with 3 to 5 inch spacing. Torkuviahe Bean should be sown where they will receive plenty of sunshine, about 6 hours per day. Water the seeds in and allow about a week for them to germinate. Grow on and harvest the beans when well ripe. Shell the pods to reveal the nutritious bean inside. Some of the beans can be saved to grow for the next years crop. Simply store the seed (bean) in a cool, dark and dry place. I hope you enjoy this unique plant and food source.
