Python Bean Seed
Python Bean Seed
Productive Asian specialty bean.
Smooth, dark green, glossy pods with a refined look. A better producer than Gita, which it replaced, without sacrificing appearance or flavor. Stringless, sweet, and richly flavored for steaming and stir-fries. Vines bear attractive, waxy foliage. 16–20" long, slender pods. Brown seeds. Pole bean; requires trellising. Avg. 2,000 seeds/lb. Packet: 50 seeds.
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.
HARVEST: Harvest regularly to encourage new pod set.
STORAGE: Store at 40°F (5°C) and 90% relative humidity for 7–10 days.
