Dragon Langerie Bush Bean (Heirloom 57 Days)

9 reviews

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. Stringless.

75 seeds

 

PLANTING

Phaseolus vulgaris

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Outside Sowing: After the last frost with soil temperatures above 60ºF. Sow 2-3” apart. Planting in soil under 60ºF 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. Sow a few times a season, 3-4 weeks apart for a continuous harvest.

Dragon Langerie Bush Bean

Great! They germinated and bloomed. Unfortunately, the rabbits love the blossoms and I haven't been able to harvest enough for even a single serving.

My favorite bush bean

I grow the Dragon Langerie every year in my garden for its juicy, delicious flavor and high production. I love the color of this bean, as well as the taste, raw or cooked. Easy to grow, and prolific. A true winner.

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 :-(
