Navy Beans, also known as haricot beans or pea beans, have a long history dating back to the early 19th century in the United States. They were originally cultivated by the U.S. Navy as a staple food for sailors, hence the name "navy beans." These beans were prized for their long shelf life, nutritional value, and versatility in cooking. Over time, navy beans became popular in home kitchens across the country and are now a beloved ingredient in various dishes worldwide.

Culinary Uses:

Navy Beans are valued for their creamy texture and mild flavor, making them a versatile ingredient in many recipes. They are commonly used in soups, stews, and casseroles, where they absorb flavors and contribute to thickening the dish. Additionally, navy beans can be mashed and used as a base for spreads or dips, adding a nutritious boost to snacks and appetizers. Whether enjoyed as a hearty main course or a comforting side dish, navy beans are a nutritious and delicious addition to any meal.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:

Navy Beans are bush-type plants that grow to a compact size, making them suitable for small gardens or container growing. Plant seeds directly into the garden after the danger of frost has passed, spacing them 2-4 inches apart in rows that are 18-24 inches apart. Ensure the soil is well-drained and fertile, with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0. Water the plants consistently, keeping the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Mulching around the base of the plants can help conserve moisture and suppress weeds. With proper care, you can expect a bountiful harvest of nutritious navy beans in just a few months.
