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, Burpees Stringless Green Pod is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Germination As a child, my mother always swore by Burpee. As a young mother, I swore by Burpee. Now that I'm close to retirement age, I am sadden by the quality of this bean seed. I've gardened all my life, enjoying the labor of my fruits. I've always gotten great results until this year. Out of 3 packets of seed, I have only 2 plants that germinated. I did what I've always done, but to no avail. Now, I have to reseed and I'm concerned about buying this product again. Was this just a "bad batch"? If necessary, I guess I'll have to find other seeds if this is not available and break a family tradition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Healthy & Tasty!! Grew theses last year along with Gold Mine. THey produced an ABUNDANCE of long, straight, full, juicy beans! No brown marks, little to no curve. Not tough, excellent tasting and healthiest plants I ever had! I did use Burpee's Bean Innoculant when starting. Here's a pic of a bean salad I made with them last year. YUMMY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grew from a plant last year this starting my own I bought plants last year for this variety. I use 10-22 inch pots for everything. they grew fine for me in a 21.5 inch pot. This year I am starting them myself. I'll report back on how well they grow this year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Curved beans From the time the beans first appeared in the plant they were curved like the letter C. Plants produced very few straight beans. I will not buy these again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Fruit I had nearly 100% germination, and plenty of flowers. The beans were small and "pregnant" in the middle. Many were hollow and turned little. We have picked constantly what little we had. We grow all organic and I have never had a problem with beans. However, I never used this variety either. We always grow bush, since we can experience high winds. Bummed. I even used the inoculant you sell.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great for me using container I've had great success with pole beans but thought I'd try bush beans for the stringless feature. I grow everything in Earthboxes, so factor that in. I had very little success with this variety. They all germinated well and seemed to thrive but after a couple of 'pickings', not so much. Maybe planted them too close - so I thinned them out - a few blooms but not a lot of beans. The pole beans were probably too easy and was a real go to for my family. We missed that this season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! Second year growing these tasty beans. Excellent producer that gives early and often. Everyone in the house loves them. I will probably grow this variety every year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I planted these 3 times in 2 different locations and I am very disappointed with the results. These plants are only 12-18 inches tall and they do not produce well, only a few pods per plant. The beans are tough and bland, regardless of how I cook them. My kids who usually love beans will not eat them.
