Pinto beans from store cooking beans: vining?
I planted pinto beans intended for cooking purchased at a local food store. They germinated and are growing well. I expected them to be a bush bean. I thought commercially grown dried beans would be bush varieties for ease of mechanical harvest.
Well.....the pintos look to be putting out vines like pole beans I've grown in the past. I'm hoping they will only grow short vines, but they are getting longer every day. Does anyone know if the cooking bean pintos come in bush and pole varieties? And if they do vine.....can I just throw the vines back into the raised bed they are in and let them grow in a heap until they are done growing and ready to harvest as dry beans? That doesn't seem right but trellissing them at this stage would be difficult since they are planted in a 4'x8' block.
