Dragon Langerie Bush Bean (57 days, Heirloom)

Phaseolus vulgaris

 

This Dutch wax bean has very pretty purple stripes mottled over creamy yellow pods. Both the yield and flavor of the flat, 5” long bean are remarkably good. Few varieties in the catalog produce more compliments than this one.

75 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.

    I recommend this product

    I love these beans!

    I’ve grown these beans before and I absolutely love them. I planted them again this year and they were doing wonderfully, and then, and then…rabbits ate them and I don’t think they are going to recover in time to produce a crop this year :-(

    Takes whatever nature throws at it

    I'm in NH and have always had great luck with this bean. Heat, drought, chilly nights, forgetting to fertilize, only 4 hours of sun a day, it doesn't matter, I get delicious beans from these plants. They even repeated come back from deer mowing them. I can't say enough about them.

    best string bean ive found

    in my southern michigan enviroment this plant thrives . very productive and best tasting string i know of amongst the say 15 varieties ive grown . ECSPECIALLY when aten raw as it is very tender while holding alot of moisture in its fiber rather than being tough / dry . and being yellow makes them easier to spot amongst foilage , plus theyre very large making easier to pick . been gardening 20+ years and this is the plant i recomend more than any other
