This variety has round and straight bean pods that grow long. They are an excellent jade green color and are packed with flavor. They are also fantastic for storing because they keep for long periods after they are harvested.

Plants grow in a bush growth habit giving the pods plenty of room off of the ground. They resist diseases BV, BRV, and CTV. Green beans, also known as string or snap peas, are a staple for gardens around the world because they germinate and mature so quickly! They do not require support from a pole or trellis. 

Approximately 15 seeds per packet.


SCIENTIFIC NAME: Phaseolus vulgaris

CULTURE: Choose well-drained soil with a pH range of 6.5–6.8. After last frost date sow seeds about 2" apart, 1" deep, in rows 20–36" apart. Optimum soil temperature for germination is 70–90°F (21–32°C). Plant when daytime soil temperatures average at least 60°F (16°C), or risk poor germination. For a continuous supply, make successive sowings every 2-3 weeks through midsummer.

DISEASES: Dig under or remove and compost bean straw in the fall to hasten destruction of most disease organisms. For Sclerotinia spp. (white mold) control, plant at wider row spacing to promote drying of plant leaves and soil. Practice a 3-year crop rotation. All our bush bean seeds are produced in areas known to be free of halo blight.

INSECT PESTS: Mexican bean beetles can be controlled with natural insecticides such as pyrethrin or azadarachtin.

HARVEST: Regularly to encourage new pod set.

STORAGE: Store at 40°F (5°C) and 90% relative humidity for 7–10 days.
