Huge yields of bright green, crisp, 5” beans cover the erect plants. The white seeded bean has a very fresh flavor.

This bean is ideal for eating fresh or freezing. Disease Resistance- Common Bean Mosaic, Curly Top Virus, Powdery Mildew

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.

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 the Slenderette Bush Bean 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.
