Very early and productive pole bean that can be harvested at the five inch size for excellent filet-type beans. If allowed to grow longer (7 to 8 inches), these stringless, round, very thin green beans are superior to all other pole beans that I am familiar with for practically any use. If they are kept picked, they will produce over a long period. A heavy yielder with a fine, fresh bean flavor. 30 seeds.
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 a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod 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.
