Bush beans - green French type
Small extra fine bean of beautiful quality. The cordless pods, of a medium green colour, are straight and crispy in the mouth. Barely cooked, it is tender under the tooth. The plant is robust and produces an abundant harvest. Hawaii has its place in every garden.
CULTURAL PRACTICES: Sow when all danger of frost has passed, as the seed is tender. Start around mid-May until the end of July. SOIL: Beans require a soil temperature of at least 18⁰ C but no more than 24⁰ C. Poor germination will occur if planted too early or if the soil is too wet. The beans prefer a light, well-drained soil. SPACING: Space seeds 5 to 8 cm apart in rows 50 cm apart. Sow every two weeks until July for a continuous harvest. All our Bush Bean varieties are string less. GROWING TIPS: Keep well fertilized but do not allow seeds to touch concentrated fertilizer. An excess of nitrogen will cause too much foliage and fewer pods. Full sun is needed. Keep surface of soil moist until the beans start showing. HARVESTING: Do not allow over-maturing. Beans should feel firm and crisp. Pick regularly to encourage the production of new pods. Do not pick beans after a rain or in the early morning as this may cause diseases.
