Bean Bush Trio 2

$5.59 / EA


The snap bean (or green bean) is eaten pod and all and tastes significantly better when grown at home rather than bought at the grocery store. The three varieties in this packet are bush type beans, which means that they require no staking and produce most of their crop over a 2 to 3 week period. Packet includes: 'Blue Lake 274', an heirloom favorite, noted for excellent flavor and texture, fresh or frozen (white seed); 'Resistant Cherokee Wax', a vigorous plant producing bright yellow pods (black seed); and 'Purple Queen', with glossy deep purple pods that turn forest green when cooked (brown seed).

Sowing Tips:
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.
