Growing Information

Beans, French/Filet Beans

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 a 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 filet bean seeds are Halo-Blight free.
Mexican bean beetles can be controlled with pyrethrin or azadirachtin.
HARVEST: Harvest regularly to encourage new pod set. Filet beans are intended to be picked very slender, ?–¼" in diameter. A continuous yield of "extra fine" (¼" 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. Filet beans are not recommended for freezing or canning.
Store at 40°F (5°C) and 90% relative humidity for 7–10 days.
1,000 seeds/125', 1 lb./175', 116M/acre at 8 seeds/ft. and 3' row spacing.
Seeds/lb.: 800–1,700 (avg. 1,400).
PACKET: 175 seeds, sows 20-25'.
