Slenderette Bush Bean (53 days)

Phaseolus vulgaris

Huge yields of bright green, crisp, 5” beans cover the erect plants. The white seeded bean has a very fresh flavor. Thought of as a remarkably thin bean when introduced, Slenderette is a very attractive bean for use in side dishes. This bean is ideal for eating fresh or freezing.   

150 seeds



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.
