Bean Bush Jade Seeds

Bean Bush Jade Seeds

Phaseolus vulgaris

Item #0258

60 days. Jade has been a favorite of gardeners since first introduced for its consistent long, straight, stringless pods that are tender and sweet with a beautiful, very dark green color. Upright, bushy plants hold the pods high so they don’t curl or have tip rot. In addition to being very productive, plants have good disease resistance to common bean mosaic viruses and are tolerant to rust.

This packet sows three 5-foot rows

Days to Emerge:
7-10 days

Seed Depth:

Seed Spacing:
1 seed every 4"-6"

Row Spacing:

Not necessary

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperatures are warm. Bush beans can be sown in succession to produce beans all season. Sow a new crop every 7 to 14 days up to 60 days before first fall frost. Even though frost sensitive, and preferring warm temperatures, beans drop flowers if daytime temperatures are consistently above 90°F. In these very hot summer areas, beans should be sown early spring through March and again late summer through fall.

When to start inside: Not recommended

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; pods are typically 5”-7” long.
