BUSH BEAN SEEDS
We love bush beans. They mature early, are available in a wide variety of flavors, textures, and colors and are very easy to grow.
PROVIDER Bush Bean Seeds
(OP) 50 days
Organically grown. Provider bush bean seeds produce compact plants, tolerate adverse weather, and produce 5-5.5 inch long, tender, round pods. The purple seeds germinate well even in cool weather and the plants are vigorous, productive and reliable.
DRAGON TONGUE Bush Bean Seeds
(OP) 60 days - snap bean, 95 days - dry bean
Stocky bushes carry loads of purple striped pods of fantastic flavor. A dual purpose bean, 'Dragon Tongue' can be harvested young as snap beans, or allowed to fully mature for dry bean use. 'Dragon Tongue' is a proven performer we highly recommend.
NICKEL (French Filet) Bush Bean Seeds
(OP) 52 days
Called "Haricot Verts" in France, these thin, tender, stringless, gourmet baby beans have superb flavor - among the tastiest of all beans. Mature at 4-5 inches long, they are so tender, cooking time is quite short. Each sturdy, easy to grow plant can produce up to 1/4 lb. or more delectable filets. Highly recommended.
How to Plant BUSH BEAN Seeds
Direct sow into the vegetable garden after all danger of frost, 2-3 inches apart, in rows 18-30 inches apart.
Comments: To ensure a continuous supply make successive sowings every 3-4 weeks up until two months before the first anticipated fall frost. Pick snap and filet beans when the seeds inside are very small. Pick shell beans when seeds are fully formed but not yet dried out. Dried beans are left on the bush until pods are brittle and easy to split.
