Jade Bush Green Bean

(56 days) Open-pollinated. Produces great yields of tasty 5–7" straight slender round dark green beans that keep coming until late in the season, long after others have quit. Tender pods with traditional bean flavor retain rich color longer than others, both on the vine and after picking. Known for their holding quality, and favored by both market and home gardeners. Jade’s strong upright bush habit holds pods above the ground, reducing curling and tip rot. PVP has expired. Resistant to BBS, CBMV, NY15, CTV, tolerant to R. Caution: white-seeded Jade is a fussy germinator. Needs soil temperature at least 60° and irrigation during dry spells.

Additional Information

Beans

Phaseolus vulgaris 2 oz packet sows 25 ft; 1 lb, 200 ft. Avg 180 seeds/2 oz packet.

Culture: Legumes have moderate fertility needs. Excessive nitrogen may induce some varieties to develop vines in moist hot weather. Tender, will not survive frost. Plant 3–4 seeds/ft in rows 24–30" apart. Pick frequently for maximum yields, but avoid disturbing foliage in wet weather to prevent spread of fungal diseases. White-seeded beans usually don’t germinate as well as dark-seeded. Minimum germination soil temperature 60°. Optimal range 60–80°.
