Black Turtle Beans are rarely prolific sprouters. They are intended as soup beans by farmers và seed brokers, and though we look for the best sprouters, always testing several lots every crop year, we are willing to accept as low a germination rate as một nửa when it comes to black Beans (and Pinto Beans). As long as they have no hard seed they will cook just fine.

So, vì chưng not grow beyond the point where the beans that are sprouted have 1/4 - 1/2 inch tails - those that are not sprouted will either never sprout or will take too long. If you keep growing you will over-grow the sprouted beans which will be an unpleasant experience. Trust us, we know.
