Growing Tips

Planting

Plant green beans in soil temperatures of 65 degrees or greater. Planting depth should be 1/2" to 1". Row spacing should be 30" for handpicking. There should be approximately 2" between plants. Some commercial growers are using 15" rows for late planted green beans that are going to be mechanically harvested.

Management

Weed pressure and insect pressure are the hardest things to control in green beans. If conditions are wet, diseases are more prevalent.

Harvest

Harvest green beans when 50% of the beans are 3 - 4 sieve.

Storage

Store beans at 40 - 45ºF and 95% humidity.

Use Guidelines

Home Garden and Farm Market varieties are considered to be high quality (gourmet) for fresh use or processing. They are low in fiber and more tender. As with most home garden varieties, pods set over a longer period for extended harvest.

Shipping varieties contain fiber that slows wrinkling under long distance shipping or longer time between picking and use on the stand. They are normally less tender than Home Garden or Farm Market varieties. Shipping varieties have a more concentrated pod set for mechanical harvest.
