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°. Optimal temperature 77°. Emergence takes 16 days at 59°; only 8 days at 77°. Produce 97% normal seedlings at 77°, but only 47% at 86°.

  • ANTH: Anthracnose
  • BBS: Bacterial Brown Spot

  • HB: Halo Blight
  • NY 15: NY 15 Mosaic Virus
  • PM: Powdery Mildew
