Dependable favorite with excellent flavor.
Growing to over 11", Fortex produces extra-long round pods. Early and very productive, the beans may be picked at 7" in length for extra-slender "filet" beans.

CULTURE: Grow pole beans on trellises, poles, or mesh fencing (such as Hortonova). Sow seeds 1" deep, spaced 3" apart in rows 4' apart after soil temperature exceeds 60°F (16°C). If using poles, plant 4-6 seeds at the base of each pole. Inoculants can increase yields.
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 3-year crop rotation, preferably into corn or grain crops. All our pole bean seeds are Halo-Blight free.
INSECT PESTS: Mexican bean beetles can be controlled with insecticides such as pyrethrin or azadirachtin.
