Our earliest pole bean. The 7-8 inch flattened, stringless pods stay tender between pickings. It’s ability to mature quickly makes it possible for second plantings. The name of this variety might chill those of us who live in the northeast but this nor’ easter will give you shovels of beans not snow!
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.
Your input is very much appreciated. Share it with your friends so they can enjoy it too!
The pole beans are not yet planted, but my radishes are beginnint to pop up, so that is good.
