Outside - Bush type: 1" deep and 4-6" apart with soil temperatures above 60 degrees and after the last frost. Planting under 60 degrees results in poor germination. Pole type: Plant 1" deep and 3-4" apart for trellis/pole growth. Drying type: 1" deep and 5-6" apart. Leave beans on the plant until the leaves are falling and pods are dry and withered.
Harvest - Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually to prolong production.
Tips - Water well during hot dry period and do not over fertilize which results in surplus of foliage and low, delayed prod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants. Plant seeds every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest throughout the summer. 150 seeds
