PLANTING

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.

    Favorite Green Bean

    This is a true haricot vert, very thin and elegant with a mild flavor. My husband planted the entire packet at the same time and we had a ton of beans for a month's time. Luckily they blanche and freeze well, and are a great addition to stir-frys direct from the freezer. WIll succession plant next year though!

    Delicious, productive, pick when small, cook briefly and enjoy. Haven't had diseases with them.

    prolific bean producer

    this will be my third summer planting Maxibel beans and I cannot say enough positives about them. They germinate well, produce delicious, long, thin hericot vert and don't seem to be susceptible to diseases. They produce a good crop over a number of weeks. Very important to pick the beans while they are slim, without any bean bumps. Soooo tender! I recommend them to my gardening buds and have received good reviews when I've served them to family and friends.
