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.

Harvesting: French filet beans should be harvested when beans are between 1/8" and 1/4" wide and about 4" - 5" long. Do not allow beans to get as wide as a normal snap bean. At season’s end, plants are great compost material if not diseased.
