Bountiful Bush Bean (46 days, Heirloom)

Phaseolus vulgaris

Heirloom 1898

Very early and great canning bean. The pods are about 6” long and borne over a relatively long period of time. Both foliage and beans are a lighter green in color than most others. Great for those extra early summer harvests and also the late summer plantings. Stringless. 

150 seeds

PLANTING

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85 degrees F.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Outside Sowing: After the last frost with soil temperatures above 60 degrees F. Sow 2-3” apart. Planting in soil under 60 degrees results in poor germination. 

How much does a packet plant: 25 foot single row 

Harvest: Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually every 2-3 days to prolong production.

Tips: Grow in light, well-drained soil, provide adequate, even moisture, especially at flowering time. Dry soil can result in low yields and fibrous pods. Do not over fertilize with nitrogen 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.

    Amazing!

    The seeds arrived much faster than I expected. I have had a 100% germination rate! And the personal handwriiten note made me realize that EVERY costumer is important. I wasn't just an order number! Love them! I will always order my seeds from them.

    almost a pole bean!

    This is a yummy bean. It does vine to about 4 feet here in the mid-Atlantic. Tall pea-brush type support is enough to keep it from tangling so much that you can't find the beans.
