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.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHow to Harvest Slenderette Bush Bean\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMost 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.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eAbout Slenderette Bush Beans Seeds\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eSlender, gourmet quality, smooth, stringless pods are glossy and dark green.

Germinating in just under a week, bush bean is harvestable as soon as 50-60 days and is an ideal introductory crop for children and beginners. Unlike the prolific and vining pole bean, bush bean matures at about 18-24” tall without need for trellis support. Persistent bush bean features fruiting pods of every color including red, purple, black, white, and yellow.\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2017-06-27T16:08:33-06:00","created_at":"2017-06-27T16:08:37-06:00","vendor":"Mountain Valley Seed Co.","type":"Vegetable Seeds","tags":["50-59 Days","Annual","Bean","Full Sun","Green","Heirloom","Heirloom_web","Non-GMO","Open Pollinated","Packet","Seeds","veg_bean","Vegetable","Warmer","Zone 3","Zone 4","Zone 5","Zone 6","Zone 7","Zone 8","Zone 9"],"price":279,"price_min":279,"price_max":8699,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":38926592136,"title":"30g Pkg (3x4)","option1":"30g Pkg (3x4)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"18868","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":{"id":4612235657331,"product_id":9985411656,"position":1,"created_at":"2018-08-07T10:25:22-06:00","updated_at":"2020-11-06T09:12:22-07:00","alt":" Bean -
