Derby Bush bean is an open pollinated bush type bean that  grows 45 – 46cm (18 inches) tall with a spread of 38-45 cm (15-18”).  This sturdy bush bean produces large yields of remarkably tender green beans.  Pods are a medium dark green, stringless and up to 17 – 18cm (7”) long. A great container bean as they are self supporting with a shallow root system. ​ May plant 2-3 successions of crops until mid summer. A wonderful bean that is resistant to Common Bean Mosaic Virus.


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.
