Calima Bush Bean (55 Days)

Phaseolus vulgaris

Excellent flavor with a crunchy and nutty taste. Slender, dark green french filet type pods are at the top of the bush with the 7-8“ long beans dangling straight downward, making picking easy. Keep the pods harvested at pencil size and the bush will reward you with high yields for a long harvest window of about 4 weeks. Best tasting and performing bean in our trials this season. 

150 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.
