Stringless Green Pod Bush Bean (50 days, Heirloom)

5 reviews

Heirloom 1894

The 1930 Ferry catalog refers to this bean as primarily grown by market gardeners, but it is also a great choice for the home. Produces loads of meaty, juicy, and round 6”green beans that stay totally stringless and tender even at a large size. Excellent bean for canning, freezing, or market. 

1 ounce = approx. 70-90 seeds

 

PLANTING

Phaseolus vulgaris

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 harevest.

Good Beans

Wonderful! My beans did excellent! I have already picked and cooked them! The taste was so good, just like my grandmother's beans. She raised stringless green pods years ago, that's why I ordered these beans. Will order them again!

Stringless Green Beans

I tried these last year for the first time, and am sold on the flavor - and of course always glad when the strings aren't present! Again, I give them something to support them.

Loved these

I have preferred pole beans because I thought they gave a bigger yield. I don't beleive that anymore. The bushes are hardy and are still producing. We planted another two weeks after these and I'm hoping the weather stays warm enough for us to get their full yield. Couldn't be happier.

They came up fast. lots of green bushy plant, but have not produced abundantly. I have made a second planting. Will see if they do any better.

I was surprised to see

I was surprised to see how quickly they came up--about 5-6 days. Now they are almost 6inches tall! Can't wait till I am outside picking beans and enjoying them. Will let you know. Dianah Sue
