Many of you asked us to offer this variety in our catalog and we now know why, it is an extraordinary French filet bean. Growing to over 10”, the delicious round pods have a pronounced nutty flavor that can be harvested at any size, small and slender or large and plump. Yields are impressive and long lasting, keeping you picking to the end of the season. To all those customers who suggested we carry this bean, thank you! 30 seeds
Outside- Bush type: 1” deep and 4-6” apart with soil temperatures above 60 degrees and after the last frost. Planting under 60 degrees results in poor germination. Pole type: Plant 1” deep and 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Drying type: 1” deep and 5-6” apart. Leave beans on the plant until the leaves are falling and pods are dry and withered
Harvest- Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually to prolong production.
Tips- Water well during hot dry period and do not over fertilize 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. Plant seeds every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest throughout the summer.
