Jade Bush Bean Seeds


5 out of 5 stars
(3 reviews)
'Jade' is a favorite of gardeners for its consistently long, straight, stringless pods that are tender and sweet with a beautiful, dark green color. Upright, bushy plants hold the pods high, avoiding tip rot. In addition to being very productive, plants are more heat and cold tolerant than other types, are resistant to bean common mosaic viruses 1 and NY15, and tolerant to curly top virus and rust.

Botanical Name: Phaseolus vulgaris

Days to Maturity: 55 Days

Family: Fabaceae

Native: Mexico and South America

Hardiness: Annual; very frost sensitive

Plant Dimensions: 14"–18" tall, 8"–10" wide, upright bushy plants

Variety Information: 'Jade' produces very dark green, round, 6½" long pods with white seeds. Plants are resistant to common bean mosaic viruses 1 and NY15, and tolerant to curly top virus and rust.

Type: Snap bean

Attributes: Disease Resistant, Good for Containers

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.

When to Start Inside: Not recommended; bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.

Days to Emerge: 6–12 Days

Seed Depth: 1"

Seed Spacing: 1 seed every 4"

Row Spacing: 24"

Thinning: Not required

Harvesting: Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod "snaps" or breaks in half cleanly. This is when the seeds have just begun to form and the pods are several inches long (depending on the variety). Hold the stem with one hand, and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches, which will continue to produce. At season's end, plants are great compost material if they are disease-free.

Because bush beans were developed from pole beans (for condensed and easier harvests), sometimes they can revert to some of the traits of their predecessors by stretching and getting a little lanky before settling into more of a compact bush habit. Thus, why your bush bean appears to be a pole bean.

Easy to Grow in a Container!

This is the first time I have ever successfully grown beans. The jade beans are my mom's go-to and I'm glad I finally followed suit! They grew super well in a small pot and produced all summer long. They were very tasty as well. I will definitely be planting these again.

Best tasting beans EVER!

5 out of 5 stars Jan 2, 2023
I've grown a lot of different varieties of green beans, both pole and bush. By far, these are the tenderest, tastiest green beans I've ever grown. My grandma, who gardened extensively most of her life (she passed away at age 102), told me 'Jade' were the best green beans she'd ever eaten in her life. That's a ringing endorsement if ever there was one. These are very easy to grow, too.

I grow this variety every year. They are tender, stringless, and so tasty. They are my go to for green beans. I only have a few more portions in my freezer. Already dropping seed for this season in zone 9.
