(Phaseolus vulgaris) - The pinto Bean
is an oval, medium-sized bean, usually mottled on a beige background. It has good heat and drought resistance making it a favorite in arid, dry areas. It's the bean normally used in Mexican cooking. They can be used either fresh or dried.
Planting & Growing Guidelines:
Sow seed after any danger of frost has passed, and when the soil has warmed to at least 60?ø F (16?ø C). Plant 1 inch (2.5 cm) deep and 3 inches (7.5) apart in single or double rows. Cultivate shallowly until the plants are large enough to shade out weeds. Mulch between rows to help prevent pods from rotting if they touch they ground. Moisture is critical when the plants are in flower. When pods begin to mature, withhold water to help with drying.
