Yellow Bush Bean. HEIRLOOM 1900 - Pencil Pod is nicely rounded, slim, and elongated, hence the name. It is a heavy producer which yields over a long period. The flavor is sweet and juicy. The contrast of yellow pods and green leaves is an attractive feature in the mid-summer garden, and of course you are less apt to miss them when picking. Seeds are black. 2 oz packet (approx. 165 seeds)

Seeds are black. 2 oz packet (approx. 165 seeds). PLANTING: 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.

Best snap bean! Review by Rachel
I tried this variety last year. It is our favorite and we have tried a lot of snap beans. My husband who really doesn't care for green beans absolutely loved these. I have ordered them again this year. (Posted on 3/10/14)
