Romano Bush Bean (54 days)


Phaseolus vulgaris


This bush Romano-type bean continues to be the best of its class year after year. The plants are compact, yield is early, abundant, and extends over a number of weeks. Beans are 6" long, a tad shorter than the pole types, and possess that incomparable Romano flavor.

100 seeds



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.

Good fresh, but not frozen

They had OK flavor, but couldn't compare to Kentucky Wonder poles. The bushes kept producing quite late as long as I kept them picked, so that was a nice surprise. Even the larger beans were tender, not tough and stringy. After being frozen, the cooked beans were mushy, with outer skins sloughing off - not visually appealing.

Romano Bush Bean

I have been planting bush green beans for many years and I have grown umpteen different varieties over the years. In past two years I started planting Romano Bush Bean in lieu of standard shaped green beans. I now prefer Romano's over other types. This variety is delicious, vigorous, dependable, bountiful, disease free and fast growing. I recommend this variety. I am growing this variety again in my garden this year

My favorite bean!

I have always been able to count on these Bush Romanos to be strong producers and deliver excellent flavor. They are also the first garden seeds I use to introduce young children to the benefits and thrills of growing your own food.

Wonderful flavor & very productive

I love this bean. I've been growing it for years. The flavor is amazing, rich, buttery - simply delicious steamed. I've found it to be extremely productive in Washington DC.
