Masai Bush Bean (47 days)


Phaseolus vulgaris


Small 1’ plants produce huge yields of thin, smooth, flavorful 4” beans. Several plants will provide a meal for two and due to the growth habit the harvest is quick and easy. One of the best beans for container growing. Wonderful late summer harvest. Reportedly Masai is now “the standard” bean in Europe.  Disease resistance- Bean Mosiac Virus, Bacterial Brown Spot, and Common Rust and Curly Top Virus.  PVP

150 seeds



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.

Best Beans

I have tried several varieties of beans over the years. These are, by far, the best bush beans going. They are prolific, taste delicious, are tender, and freeze well.

Best Beans Ever!

We have been growing and enjoying Masai beans from Pinetree seeds for years. The beans are tender and tasty and often produce a second harvest. We frequently buy extra packets of seeds to share with friends and always make "Masai converts". They are delicious steamed, are wonderful parboiled and chilled for salads and make lovely dilly beans. Grow these beans!
