Planting & Care

Soil & Water: For proper germination, beans need warm soil of 65°F or higher. Plant in well-drained soil that is slightly acidic, about pH of 6.0 - 6.8. Avoid overhead watering as damp leaves can lead to disease such as powdery mildew.

Planting & Growing: Sow directly in garden when soils have warmed and danger of frost has passed. Keep seedbed evenly moist. Boost yields and germination by adding inoculants. Space rows 28-36" apart.

Harvesting & Storage: Days to maturity is for dry beans, but you can pick and eat when fresh. Pick when the seeds are fully formed. For dry beans, harvest when most of the leaves have yellowed or fallen off. If weather prevents field drying, plants can be pulled up and dried under cover. When beans are fully dry, they can be stored in a cool dry place in an airtight container.
