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 1 inch 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 6 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, Soy, Midori Giant is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Germinate but don't produce I bought these seeds two years ago and have tried to grow them for the past two summers. Since the soil here in the cool Pacific Northwest doesn't reach 60 until late May or so, I've been starting them indoors in early spring to give them a head-start. Although most germinate, they grow really long and leggy (not bushy) so I'm forced to stake them. They grow like vines with just a few leaves and hardly any blossoms. How can I make them grow bushy? Do I need to pinch them back?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy yield I've been growing these soybeans for 4 years now and other than my first crop, I've been successful. I get a ALOT of pods from every plant, no disease problems . I do have some tips though. First, always use soil inoculant. If you don't, the seeds will rot in the ground. If you have heavy clay soil, amend with compost and other organics. Clay soil holds a lot of water and that too contributes to seed rot. I also wait until the end of May, first week of June to plant them. The weather has stabilized and the ground is warm. Lastly, the only pest that I had was Japanese beetles. After 2 seasons of hand picking them from the plants, I had a significant drop in the population. Oh, and protect the plants from windy conditions such as storms. They do topple easily and other than looking strange, the plants are not harmed, but still try to set them upright again, being careful not to damage the root system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Germination problems??? I have grown these for several years and love them. I live in the upper Midwest, so temps have to be considered when planting in the spring. The first year we had great success with germination and high yields. The last two years I have not been able to get the seeds to germinate well at all. I'm pulling out all the stops this next year to make sure it is nothing I am doing. My big concern is that I notice I am not the only one struggling to get them to germinate the last couple years. Why?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So bad, don't waste your money on this one I started planting this 3 weeks ago. There were almost 90 seeds in the bad, I planted them all. Now only 5 are coming out. I was curious what happened to others. I dug out the seeds and found out they are already rotten (why?). I feel I wasted my 3 weeks and hopes. Don't buy it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bean, Soy, Midori Giant I planted half the package(30 seeds) and only one spindly plant grew. I considered weather, animals, etc. as possible reasons and planted the other half. Same results and that plant quickly died. I am a successful gardner, otherwise, and would sure like to understand why. Anyone?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not germinate this was my second purchase through Burpee, and this product did not germinate. I planted a first batch out in the garden as directed with no success. I then planted a second batch in an indoor climate controlled setting with no success. This packet of seeds was a dud.
