Extra-early, widely adapted green bean.
Popular for fifty years because of its big early yields and rich flavor.
Well-known for its good cold-soil emergence in spring.
Disease-resistance (to CBMV, NY15, PM, DM), makes it reliable even in bad years.
BOTANICAL NAME: Phaseolus vulgaris
Start in flats/pots or seed direct in sunny location after soil reaches at least 60F. Using Garden Combo inoculant produces nitrogen in the soil and can increase yields. Plant 1" deep and 6" apart in well-dug soil, not too acid. Sow every 2-3 weeks through mid-summer for continuous supply. Keep picking beans as they mature, and remove overripe ones-will stop making new beans if there are mature ones left on the plant.
