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 disease resistant.

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.

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.

This is hands down my favorite bush bean to grow. The beans themselves are long, slender, and sweet. The bushes are tall, upright, and very strong. They don't seem to flop over like other varieties (I'm lookin' at you Provider). The upright growth habit makes harvesting easier. Plus, they are SO PROLIFIC. I planted two 8' rows and got 2.5 pounds my first picking and over a pound on the second pass a week later. I'll save space for this variety every year.
