Bean Bush Eureka Seeds

Phaseolus vulgaris

Item #0049

50-55 days. Bring the bright, garden sunshine right to your plate. Pick 'Eureka' as a young, filet bean or let mature to a beautiful, bright yellow. Plants produce heavy yields of very tender, 5"– 6" beans, and yellow pods make finding the harvest a snap! Steamed, pickled, or fresh, you will love this wax bean. Resistant to bean common mosaic virus.

This packet sows up to 20 ft.

Days to Emerge:
6 - 12 days

Seed Depth:
1"

Seed Spacing:
1 seed every
4"

Row Spacing:
2'

Thinning:
Not required


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, 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 first fall frost. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, sow as recommended above but skip the heat of summer as daytime temperatures consistently above 90ºF will cause bean flowers to drop off (no bean formation).

When to start inside: Not recommended; bean plants do not transplant well.

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.
