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
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.

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.
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 had to protect them from the groundhog with a cage. So good.
One of my Mom's favorites as she's liking these more than any others!
This is my husbands' favorite bean. It's too early to plant beans in Iowa but they have always done well in the past.
