$3.49 12 grams (~60 seeds)

Botanical Name: Phaseolus vulgaris

Days to Maturity: 54 days

Family: Fabaceae

Native: Mexico and South America

Hardiness: Frost-sensitive annual

Plant Dimensions: 15"–20" m compact bush

Variety Information: 4"–5" dark green, slender, round, straight pods, with small, white seeds; very tender. 'Tavera' has disease resistance to anthracnose and bean common mosaic virus.

Type: Snap bean

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 plants do not transplant well.

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.

Replacement beans not a good replacement

I am not happy that I was not sent the Tavern Bean seeds. Instead I got a replacement that were normal beans. I dislike normal beans. I love the Tavera beans.

Owner Response: Hi Cori, We are sorry you were not happy with the replacement sent out this spring. We have since changed our policy and do not replace packets like this. A customer service agent will be with you soon.

These beans are excellent haricot vert - as French style string beans. I have been growing them for years. They are better tasting and more reliable in terms of production than any of the other similar beans that I have tried.

Tired of stringy lumpy tough beans? Try this gourmet variety. Pick 'em early because they never get really fat. The mostly straight slim pods make lovely additions to summer meals. Here in (HOT!) Arizona, germination was a bit poor. Next time I'll seed them overly thick.

Best beans ever

This is the best green bean ever!! Tender,snappy and not stringy. We always make sure we freeze enough to have for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. I missed a catalog once and was so disappointed when I called to order and were out of stock. We went without green beans that year.
