hyathinth bean are pods too dry?seeds to dry?

karen_tennessee(7a)October 6, 2008

I have just harvested my seeds. The vines have not received much rain, after it bloomed. How should the pods look? Mine look like dried up peanut shells. The seeds look O.K. But did they dry out too quickly? What do you think. Should the pods have dried up by now or does it seem a little early for them to have done so. I live in E.Tennessee.

Thank you,

Hi Karen,
When bean/pea type seeds are ready, the pod will often look as you described. As long as you have plump firm seed , you are fine : )
