CULTURE: Filet beans are intended to be picked very slender, 1/8- 1/4" in diameter. A continuous yield of "extra fine" ( 1/4" diam.) grade is maintained by picking every 36-48 hours. Three days in hot weather or five days in cool weather is about the maximum delay between harvests to ensure an absence of oversized, tough beans. Otherwise grow just like ordinary bush beans. Not recommended for freezing or canning. PACKET: 175 seeds sows 20'-25'.
