Shipping Information & Notes

Growing Information

Beans, Fresh Shell



CULTURE: Choose well-drained soil with a pH above 6.0. After the last frost date sow seeds directly into the garden soil about 2" apart, 1" deep, in rows 20–36" apart. Optimum soil temperature for germination is 70–90°F (21–32°C). Plant seed when daytime soil temperatures average at least 60°F (16°C), or risk poor germination. Inoculants can increase yields. For a continuous supply make successive sowings every 2–3 weeks through midsummer. Do not thin. Dark-colored seeds germinate better in cool soil than white seeds.
DISEASES:
Plow under or remove and compost bean straw in the fall to hasten destruction of most disease organisms. For sclerotinia white mold control, plant at wider row spacing to promote drying of plant leaves and soil. Practice a three-year crop rotation, preferably into corn or grain crops. All our fresh shell bean seeds are Halo-Blight free.
INSECT PESTS:
Mexican bean beetles can be controlled with pyrethrin or azadirachtin.
HARVEST: Harvest regularly to encourage new pod set. Ready to pick when beans are plump inside pods.
STORAGE:
Store at 40°F (5°C) and 90% relative humidity for 7–10 days.

Italian: 1 lb./150', 10 lb./1,000', 145 lb./acre at 3' between rows. French: 1 lb./300', 5 lb./1,000', 72 lb./acre.
