Beans, Snap

Phaseolus vulgaris

In my opinion, snap beans are one of the easiest plants to grow.  If you love beans, you should definitely have plants of your own!

The fresh seeds germinate readily and grow very quickly.  They are a warm season crop and require temperatures above sixty-five degrees to germinate.  Make sure your soil mix is light and fluffy so the large seed can push through the soil surface.

Bush beans are happy in a pot, but pole beans will need a support structure to climb on.  Harvest beans before the pod starts to bulge with seeds.

Classification: Annual
Sowing Depth: 1 inch
Height, Bush: 1-2 feet
Height, Pole: 6-10 feet or more, semi-dwarf varieties around 3 feet.
Pollination: Most varieties, no pollination required.
