Die Gartenbohne (Phaseolus vulgare) haben die Indianer Südamerikas gezüchtet und ist von den Amerikafahrern im 16. Jahrhundert nach Europa gebracht worden, wo sie einen rasanten Siegeszug in den Gärten hinlegte.

Wurden zuerst die eiweissreichen trockenen Bohnen zu Suppe oder Mus verkocht, folgten ab dem 20. Jahrhundert zarte, fadenlose Sorten. Erst so wurde die Gartenbohne vom Grundnahrungsmittel zur delikaten Beilage. Die fleischlose Ernährung bringt die Trockenbohne wieder in Mode. Wir bieten ein tolles Sortiment von Stangen- und Buschbohnen an. Beide sind im Hausgarten oder auf dem Balkon beim Stadtgmüesler einfach zu kultivieren.

(Runner bean) No other bean has been attributes with that many mystic stories as the monstrance bean. The drawing - is it the picture of a monstrance or an angel? like painted with the finest brush on noble white, stimulates the yearning for the sacred.

Put some of these seeds in the sun warmed soil in May. Watch how they germinate, climb up a pole, bloom, produce fruits and develop a pattern on the mature seeds towards autumn. Then take the pods into the house, and keep the seed in its protective shell, so you can shell it during Christmas time and admire it. The worldly manner: Continuously harvest the tender green pods in summer and shell the the dried husks in autumn so you can start to prepare bean dishes. Gardener tip: Let the seeds swell in lukewarm chamomile tea for 12 hours before sowing.

We got the very first, pretty, shiny black seeds of the black soy bean from Kaori Takigawa. "They were the best". This is something we can only confirm. Kaori recommends them for EDAMAME. The young pods are continuously harvested (the seeds still have to be light and soft). Blanch in boiling salt water. Let drip off and serve. The pods can be opened with a little bit of finger pressure and the seeds are put in one's mouth. The ripe seeds can also be prepared like other dried beans.

Sow in rows (50cm distance) from the middle of May. Every 5-6cm, put a seed about 2 cm deep into the soil. Harvest the dry husks continuously in September, maybe let dry for longer, deseed manually or put the dry plants in a cloth bag and thresh with a stick. Sieve and clean up.
