Pencil Pod Bush Bean (Heirloom 52 Days)

Heirloom 1900

Pencil Pod is nicely rounded, slim, and elongated. It is a heavy producer that yields over a long period. The flavor is sweet and juicy. The contrast of yellow pods and green leaves is an attractive feature in the mid-summer garden. Seeds are black. Stringless. Disease Resistance-Common Bean Mosaic

 

1 ounce = approx. 80-100 seeds

 

PLANTING

Phaseolus vulgaris

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Outside Sowing: After the last frost with soil temperatures above 60ºF. Sow 2-3” apart. Planting in soil under 60ºF 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. Sow a few times a season, 3-4 weeks apart for a continuous harvest.

Pencil pod wax beans

Great - this is the best yellow bean out there (and it's an heirloom), and it seems to be carried less by my local greenhouses, so thank you for carrying it.

Pencil pod wax bean

Germinated fine. I've been planting them for a long time - probably my favorite wax bean. And they seem to do a great job of re-flowering on their own to keep producing.

Received them to late.

We planted Mtn half runners and Rattlesnake beans this year because our delivery was not here when it was time to plant. The Rattlesnake beans are great and will plant them again. God Bless All

I love these.

I had to protect them from the groundhog with a cage. So good.
