Calima Bush Bean (55 Days)

4

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

 

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.

Bean Perfection

I plant several varieties of green beans and trial new kinds each year. This is by far the best bean I've ever planted. They produce well, are easy to pick and are such a great slender size. They are tender and taste great in cooking. The whole family loves them. The best product I've ordered from Pinetree so far.

Calima Bush Bean

Well, Spring STILL hasn't Sprung here in E. Central MO so I haven't been able to plant my Calimas yet. But I bought them from Pinetree last year and they were without question some of the finest bush beans we've ever grown.Great taste and good production. Also, Pinetree sells them for a very good price. A sure winner!
