Phaseolus vulgaris

 

Strike is a heavy yielding 5” bean with great flavor. While it is very popular with commercial growers it is also ideal for home gardeners because of its earliness, its productivity, its flavor, and the fact that plants yield over a remarkably long period of time. Stringless. Disease resistance-Common Bean Mosiac Virus

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.

Strike beans

The earliest crop didn't germinate predictably but I expected that due to the cold wet spring. Then I planted the second crop and they did fine. Today, I am canning some of the first crop.

Great bean, great service.

I have not yet planted these beans, but did last year and they were a prolific, stringless, delicious bean. And Pinetree staff were so kind to send this order separately when I inadvertently left the bean order off my full order!

Amazing!

These beans are simply amazing! Had wonderful success in June and replanted for fall. There were still beans on the plants at the end of October. Kids loved the tender flavor. No strings! I'm hooked.

Unfortunately, only two of my 25 plants survived, after I moved them. The roots seemed to just rot. I suppose it could have been the dirt I planted them in, which contained a lot of decomposed mulch. Anyway, I ended up buying plants from Walmart.

The best for high production

If you are into canning this is the bean for you. Handfuls of beans on each plant ...I've picked up to 20 beans off a plant at a time. Plus very good tasting. You will get masses of beans and once picked they will come back vigorously if watered well for a second crop. We plant every 3 weeks until Sept here in MO
