Heirloom 1877

Phaseolus vulgaris

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures are 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Outside Sowing: After last frost with soil temperatures above 60ºF.  Sow 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Planting in soil under 60ºF results in poor germination. 

How much does a packet plant: 12 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.

Have bought your seeds for years and enjoy eating all the great fruits and vegatables. The seeds are fresh and viable and less expensive than all the rest of the seed catalogs than are sent to me.. I havebeen a Master Gardener for over 22_years and appreciate your seeds and friendly service for all these years.

Good germination

Planted on a Friday and they were all up in 8 days. The plants are well-formed with deep green coloring - very good quality. I may update this review once the fruits are ready to be tested.
