Video: Timing Desiccation in Black Beans


Dry beans are ready for desiccation when:

(1) 80–90% of leaves have dropped and 80% of pods have changed to their mature colour.
(2) Seeds rattle in the lowest pods. Bottom pods are ripe and dry with seeds detached from the pod.
(3) Upper pods may still be yellow in colour. Seeds in the upper pods have lost their green colour when split.
