Treated Royal Burgundy Bush Bean Garden Seeds
Good air circulation around bush bean plants is essential, especially for late shelling or dry type beans, as they are very susceptible to fungal diseases which prevail later in the season. Bush beans are light feeders; compost or well-rotted manures worked into the soil at the time of planting is sufficient. The 6-inch long pods turn green after cooking. Upright, 24-inch tall plants hold their pencil-shaped pods off the ground. Royal Burgundy performs exceptionally well under cool conditions.
