The trusted purple podded variety is a productive and long bearing favourite. A good choice to get a jump on the season when the soil is still on the cool side. Richly textured, crispy and meaty 6" long pods have a delicious flavour whether eaten fresh or brought out from the freezer over the winter. When cooked for 2 minutes, the pods turn a bright green indicating the perfect blanching time for freezing. 

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.
