Stays tender and stringless even when fully mature.
HEIRLOOM. This 1941 All-America Selections winner remains a customer favorite. Why? Because the beans stay tender, stringless and ever so tasty when fully mature. Bush bean pods are 4 ½ - 5 ½" long, thick and round in cross section, with distinctive curved tips. Superb as a dried shell bean.
Sow in average soil in full sun after danger of frost, spring to early summer. In rows 18-30" apart, Sow seeds about 3" apart and cover with 2" of fine soil. Firm lightly and keep evenly moist.
How to Grow
Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days. Thin to stand about 6" apart when seedlings are 1-2" tall. Bush snap beans are ready for harvesting 45-60 days after sowing, while pole snap beans are ready in 60-80 days.
Pick when pods are firm and crisp with undeveloped or small seeds. Harvest very often to avoid tough, stringy pods and ensure plant productivity.
