Full Description

Ooh la la. This dwarf French bean is superb. Take a bite. The flavor is sweet, nutty and delicious. The miracle is how the slender, 7" stringless filet beans keep coming and coming. The succulent dark green beans grow prolifically-and for twice as long as most beans. Pick them regularly and they keep producing.

How to Sow

  • Because beans are members of the legume family of plants, they can benefit from an application of a soil inoculant designed for beans and peas, prior to planting. The inoculant will enable the plants to take nitrogen from the air to use as fertilizer, which can increase crop yield and quality.
  • Sow in average soil in a sunny location after danger of frost and soil has warmed, from spring to early summer. Sow after the soil has warmed, as seeds may rot in cooler soils.
  • Coat untreated seed with an inoculant.
  • Sow in rows 24 inches apart. Sow seeds 3 inches apart and cover with 2 inches of fine soil. Firm lightly and water gently.
  • Seedlings emerge in 10-14 days depending on soil and weather conditions.
  • Keep sowing bush bean seeds every 2 weeks for a constant supply of beans.
  • Thin gradually to stand 12 inches apart when seedlings are 1-2 inches high.

How to Grow

  • In dry weather, keep soil well-watered. Plants need about 1 inch of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It’s best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
  • Cultivate or mulch to keep weed-free, but do not work or handle plants when leaves are wet.
  • Beans as companion plants: Planted closely in rows spaced around two feet, bush bean plants blend well with like-sized warm-season vegetables such as peppers, tomatoes and eggplants. Between towers of pole bean plants, planting vines such as squash can help keep weeds down. Pole beans can help protect cool-season vegetables such as spinach and lettuces, as the weather warms.

Harvest and Preserving Tips

  • For fresh use, pick pods as soon as well-filled out with peas
  • For dried bean use, harvest in about 80 days, when the pods start to dry on the plant.
  • To Dry Beans: Allow the beans to stay on the plants until they are partially dry. Then pull up the plants and hang them in a warm, dry place with good air circulation until the pods and seeds are thoroughly dry. Shell the beans and save the pods and plants for composting.

Bean Beananza is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great producer! These beans produced more beans and plumper beans than anything else I planted. The plants themselves were fuller and bigger. I will be replanting the, next year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great green bean! I have ordered these beans from Burpee for years and they always produce. The beans are long and straight with an excellent flavor and snap. It is a true bush bean with very heavy yield. I planted these beans in the Spring and they produced all summer. It is now late September and I am still harvesting and canning. I grow these beans in planter boxes around my deck and they do just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beananza bonanza Very prolific producer of long, straight, very tasty beans. If you plant enough so you have an adequate supply for your family at the beginning and end of the season, you will have PLENTY to give away in the middle of the season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I love these beans. Prolific doesn't adequately describe it! I planted about 10 seeds and the plants keep producing and producing - I've been eating green beans most of the summer. (Last year I planted about 20 seeds and had so many beans I could not give them away fast enough). The beans are delicious as well. wish I could give this 6 stars! Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I frequently have cool springs, and I also container garden due to deer and lack of a place for a fenced garden. I started these indoors in mid-April in a warm room with grow lights. I got about 70% germination. I then put the plants outside May 1, in large containers under a popup greenhouse. I took the greenhouse off the first week of June, mainly because the plants were too big for the greenhouse. The plants are loaded with small beans, although the French Beans are a bit ahead of these. It's my first year with these and I will do them again, as they seem to be a great success. Traditionally we like to freeze a lot of beans for year long eating. I also planted the French Bean variety and Fortex Pole beans. We will see what produces the most! My container garden has Beananza and French Beans on the left, Super Sauce in the center and Cherry Tomatoes on the right, with herbs up on the rail.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Green Bean I have been growing beananze for 3 years. This green bean is one of the best for pressure canning. They average 9 inches in length and stay tender. This past summer I canned 45 jars of beananza. I have found they do not grow well in dry hot summers as long as they are irrigated they will produce well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from INCREDIBLE!!!! I am sorry that several growers had problems with this bean; perhaps it is the region they are in. I live in the South and have to say that I was absolutely thrilled with Beananza; I got near 100% germination and heavy yields, and everyone who has tasted these beans say they are the absolute best they've ever had. I cannot wait 'til spring to plant again!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother with these. These beans had extremely low germination. I would estimate it to be 50% or less. They did not produce well either. I would not buy these again and would recommend that you choose something else.
