Juicy-sweet and meaty with wonderful crunchy texture, Musica is the earliest, most productive pole bean we've ever grown. The broad, flat, 7"-9" long pods have slightly scalloped edges and unsurpassed rich flavor. Bred for demanding fresh markets in Spain and France, Musica's vigorous, robust vines climb quickly and effortlessly to bear extraordinary harvests. Keep these plump, great tasting pods picked, and plants will pump out more beans that you thought possible!

Planting & Care
Planting: In Spring, once weather is warm and settled and night temperatures stay securely above 55°F, plant seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Erect strong stakes, tripod poles, or trellis at planting time to support vines. Plant seeds 1" deep and 4" apart along a trellis, or if planting around tripods or stakes, plant 4 - 6 seeds 4" from each pole, thinning seedlings to 3 best plants.
Growing: Tender, crispy beans are an easy and reliable crop to grow, but don't plant seeds too early as cold conditions prevent good germination. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away; new seedlings will catch up quickly. Birds are often attracted to young bean seedlings, so watch carefully and protect with netting or floating row cover if necessary. Avoid cultivating plants or picking pods when plants are wet.
Harvest & Use: Musica's strong vines are heavy bearers, so plant to harvest often. The more you pick, the more the plants will produce. Harvest when beans are broad and 7" - 9" long. Slice in pieces and cook just until tender to enjoy their fine flavor and meaty texture. Serve hot, or cool and toss with herbed vinaigrette for a delicious green bean salad.
