Planting & Harvesting

Seed Depth: 1″ (3cm)

Plant Space: 4″ (10cm)

Row Space: 24″ (61cm)

Sprouts In: 7-10 days

Plant in well-drained, warm soil in late spring. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 75-95°F. Beans do not tolerate frost. Thinning is not normally necessary. Bush beans sometimes form tendrils similar to pole beans. You can snip them off without harming the plant.

Pick pods regularly just as they start to fill out for best flavor. Although bush beans will continue to bear throughout the season, their largest production comes in the first flush. Replant every three weeks through midsummer for continuous harvest.
