PLANTING

Phaseolus vulgaris

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures are 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Outside Sowing: After the 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.

Best flavor

This variety is our favorite. Seeds had a high germination rate and plants are robust. The foliage is a Japanese beetle salad bar, but hand-picking into soapy water is keeping the damage reasonable. We usually freeze 90+ quarts for winter use. If kept picked, they will produce right up to frost. Everyone we share them with prefers their flavor over regular bush beans of any kind.

Full-flavored Kentucky Wonders are the best tasting beans ever! They are grow quickly and produce prolifically, usually at eye-level where they are easy to pick. Cool beans!
