Additional Information

Bush Haricots Verts

Half oz packet sows 10-16 ft; 1 lb, 320-500 ft. Seeds are smaller than those of regular beans; Avg 70-125 seeds/half oz packet. Haricot vert is French for green bean. This type has fancier quality than American beans and commands a premium in markets. For optimal flavor and texture, pick when pods are still stringless and thinner than a pencil. Picking interval should be 48 hours or less.

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°.
