Montpellier Bush Haricots Vert - Organic

(57 days) We are pleased to offer once again a limited amount of seed of this very refined haricot vert for home gardens. Developed by Petoseed and later bought by Seminis/Monsanto, we trialed it right as they dropped it. We liked the tender delicate beans so much that we committed to keeping the seed going. Bears straight 6" dark green pods on upright bush plants. Our trialer said, “Excellent raw with minimal bitterness.” Exquisitely tender with a delicate flavor. Pods tend to be almost camouflaged and can be hard to pick. Small white seed. Resists CBMV and ANTH. BACK!

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°.
