Bean Bush Jade Seeds

Bean Bush Jade Seeds

Phaseolus vulgaris

Item #0258

55 days. '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 common bean mosaic, and tolerant to curly top virus, and rust.

This packet sows up to 21 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.
