Planting & Growing: May start indoors in short-season climates, or sow seed directly once soils have reached at least 65°F, preferably after the last frost. Make small, successive plantings every 10 days for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: Bush beans will produce all of their fruit over a few weeks' time. Leave the pods on the plant until they have completely dried. Store dry, shelled beans in an airtight container.
