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.

Serengeti beans-magnolia peas-muncher cuke-ancho pepper.

I’ve grown Serengeti beans for several years now. I’ve never found them anywhere else. Thank you for selling them. They are slender, tender flavorful beans and excellent for stir fries. Magnolia peas are so pretty used raw with the green snap peas in veggie dip trays. Very good flavor as well. Muncher cukes have been a fav early cuke of mine for several years. Smooth skin and great flavor make them “grazing” favs as I walk through the garden. Ancho peppers will always have a spot in my garden. The flavor is semi-hot and is super stuffed with rice and sausage and baked.

Awesome flavor & production

These beans produced so much that I was giving them to the neighbors. I planted in early May and they produced through mid August. I planted a second crop in late Auggust and they produced until mid November. I have a friend who gardens and he is going to plant Serengheti inn the spring. I give it 5:star2:
