Planting & Care

Planting: In the Spring, once the weather is warm and settled and night temperatures stay securely above 55°F, plant seeds in well-worked fertile soil in full sun. Poke seeds in 1" deep and 4" apart in rows 1-1/2' - 2' apart. Make several sowings several weeks apart until the end of June to provide long, continued harvests.

Growing: Tender, crispy garden beans are an easy, 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 covers if necessary. Avoid cultivating plants or picking pods when plants are wet.

Harvest & Use: Pick these fine flavored, gourmet French beans more often than other bean varieties; at least every other day. They should be full-size, but still very slender and no thicker than a pencil. The more you pick, the more the plants will produce. Steam or sauté them quickly, just until tender-crisp and serve simply to fully enjoy their tempting flavor.

Reviews

My favorite bush bean

Great flavor, bountiful harvest, and ages well on the bush. I love that if I don't pick the beans as often as I should, the beans maintain their flavor and crispness.
