Bean Bush Royal Burgundy Seeds

Phaseolus vulgaris

Item #0227

60 days. Green Beans (also called Snap Beans) have the best flavor when picked fresh from the garden. Royal Burgundy has delicious purple pods that are amazingly easy to grow and find among the backdrop of green foliage. It grows better than other bean types in cool weather, is very disease resistant and unlikely to be challenged by pests. Also a good container variety.

This packet plants two 5-foot rows.

Days to Emerge:
10 days

Seed Depth:
1"

Seed Spacing:
2 seeds every
4" to 6"

Row Spacing:
3' - 4'

Thinning:
When 1" tall,
thin to 1 every
4" - 6"


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost and when temperatures are warm. To produce beans all season, sow a new crop every 7 - 14 days up to 60 days before first fall frost. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, sow in March for June harvest, and August for late September harvest.

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Harvesting: Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod “snaps” or breaks in half cleanly. This is when seeds have just begun to form and the pods are 4" - 8" long. Hold stem with one hand, and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches which may continue to produce. At season’s end, plants are great compost material if not diseased.
