Jumbo

Organic Bean Seed

Product ID: 11G

Giant, Italian-style green beans.

Jumbo has dark green, extra-long pods with rich flavor. While the beans are normally picked at 6-7", they are still stringless at over 10". Seeds are light brown with dark brown stripes. In very fertile soil, plants may grow short vines (runners), but need no support. Jumbo tends to have a lower than average germination rate. High resistance to bean mosaic virus. Organically grown. Avg. 800 seeds/lb. Packet: 175 seeds.

Additional Information



CULTURE: Choose well-drained soil with a pH above 6.0. After last frost date sow seeds about 2" apart, 1" deep, in rows 20-36" apart. Optimum soil temperature for germination is 70-90°F (21-32°C). Plant 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. 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 spp. (white mold) control, plant at wider row spacing to promote drying of plant leaves and soil. Practice a 3-year crop rotation, preferably into corn or grain crops. All our bush bean seeds are Halo-Blight free.
INSECT PESTS:
Mexican bean beetles can be controlled with pyrethrin or azadirachtin. (See Index)

Regularly to encourage new pod set.
