Bean Bush Royal Burgundy Organic Seeds

Bean Bush Royal Burgundy Organic Seeds

Phaseolus vulgaris

Item #3108

60 days. Green Beans (also called Snap Beans) have the best flavor when picked fresh from the garden. Royal Burgundy has delicious purple pods that are amazingly easy to grow and find among the backdrop of green foliage. It grows better than other bean types in cool weather, is very disease resistant and unlikely to be challenged by pests. Also a good container variety.

This packet sows two 6-foot rows.

Days to Emerge:
4 - 10 days

Seed Depth:

Seed Spacing:
seed every

Row Spacing:
18" - 24"

Not required

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperatures are 65°F or warmer. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 60 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 90°F will cause bean flowers to drop off (no bean formation).

When to start inside: Not recommended

Harvesting: Royal Burgundy beans are ready to pick when the pod “snaps” or breaks in half cleanly. This is when seeds have just begun to form and the pods are 5"–6" long. Hold stem with one hand and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches, which may continue to produce. At season’s end, plants are great compost material if not diseased.
