The Slenderette Bush Bean comes from Twin Falls, Idaho and was first introduced in 1968. It produces excellent yields of dark green, slender, stringless pods that are 13 cm (5”) long.  They are an excellent choice for eating fresh, freezing, or canning.  Plants grow on a sturdy bush that can grow to 51-61 cm (20-24”) tall with a 35-45 cm (14-18”) spread.  This bean is a very heavy producer of long straight beans that mature in (50-60 days).  


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.
