Stringless Green Pod Bush Bean (Heirloom 50 Days)

9 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 harvest.

Happy seeds !

As is every year i am very happy with all you folks at Pine Tree do. You have great selection of seeds. And i will say i have very good germination with your seeds . It is rare to plant a 72 hole flat & not have 98% germination or better. Another thing that keeps me a customer is your prices .Your not dinging me $4.25 for a package of seeds i can get at wally mart for a buck or more less.

Stringless green pod bush beans

These grew rapidly and yielded well even in 50/50 shade sun. Luckily we had a cool June and they produced all I wanted before the extreme heat hit here in mid July. They were stringless enough to meet expectation. Their flavor was not top notch but adequate.

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!
