55-70 days. Open pollinated. Non-GMO. Phaseolus vulgaris. Slenderette Bush Beans have a crunchy yet juicy texture. Each plant produces heavy yields, making them excellent for home growing as well as large scale production. They are a type of green string bean, which is also known as snap peas. They grow quickly and are easy to grow even for a beginner gardener. Because they grow on bushes, support is not required for their growth habit. They simply need sun and water to flourish! Approx 120 seeds per ounce.
Bush bean can be started indoors, but performs best if sown directly after the final spring frost. Sow 2-3 seeds 1" deep and 2-3" apart in moist, Organically rich, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Whether direct sowing or transplanting, thin out strongest starts to every 18-24" in the garden as true leaves establish. Beans need light and consistent watering but, when doing so, water as close to the root as possible to avoid saturating greens known to cause root rot and mildew. Plants thrive from a top layer of mulch to help cool soil and roots. Avoid nitrogen-rich fertilizers which will cause excessive vegetative growth with minimal bean pod production.
How to Harvest Slenderette Bush Bean
Most varieties of bush bean are ready to harvest at about 50-60 days from sowing or once the pods are 3-5" long. Harvest often to encourage fruiting and to ensure pods do not dehydrate on the vine. Although some pods may pull cleanly from the vine, use a knife or shears for more fibrous pods to avoid accidental damage to the plant. Like many crops in the garden, it is widely believed that beans are best harvested in the morning for optimal sugar content.
