BD23104A (25.0 g 45-55 seeds)

Approximately 2-3 seeds per gram.
Phaseolus vulgaris
90 – 100 days for dry beans. Open Pollinated variety. Bush type plant produces amazing yields of beans.  Particularly notable for its flavor… almost buttery to nutlike.   Plants are compact, about 38-51cm (15-20") tall with a spread of 40-51cm (16-20”) wide.  Produces heavy yields of caramel-colored seeds when mature.  Green beans are best harvested when young but have a richer sharper bean flavour than most bean types.  This variety is outstanding for baking and soups as it holds its shape.  Very easy to grow.


Growing Instructions:


Beans Direct sow seeds after the last frost, when soil temperatures have reached at least 16°C (60°F). Select a location that receives full sun. Sow seeds 2.5-5cm (1-2”) deep, spaced 8-15cm (3-6”) apart in rows spaced 45-75cm (18-30”) apart. Keep soil evenly moist to promote germination. Seeds should sprout in 7-10 days. Thin seedlings to 15-20cm (6-8”) apart when they are 5-10cm (2-4”) tall. Bush beans prefer well-drained soil that is fertile and has a pH between 6.0 and 7.5. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer before planting and again after the first flowers appear. Bush beans can be harvested as snap beans when the pods are still tender and young. Harvest regularly to encourage more production. Bush beans typically reach maturity in 50-60 days.
