supermarket beans for planting? yes or not?

carlos35July 20, 2009

I do not know much about beans but this year I already picked some yellow wax beans and they were delicious but I planted them too far apart and I think I have some room for more beens in betwween the rows of the yellow wax beans. I have some red kidney beans and some roman red beans from the supermarket and I was wandering if I plant those in between the wax beans, would they grow well? are they similar to the yellow wax beans? or are they a different kind of bean? can they be eaten as string beans or do they have to be shelled? would they be bush or pole bean? sorry for so many questions but I do not know anything about growing beans. Thanks

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

These are bush beans developed for use as dry beans altho they can be used as green shellies. Should grow fine, but they take longer to mature than snap beans and you may be pushing in your climate. You would be better off at this time to plant a quick maturing snap bean.
