Bush Bean Seeds - Golden Pencil Pod - Heirloom Untreated NON-GMO From Canada

Bush Bean Seeds - Golden Pencil Pod

(Phaseolus vulgaris) 60 days. Heirloom bean; 1900, USA.

Golden Pencil Pod is a classic, old yellow wax bean. Pods are sweet, crisp & about 6 inches in length. Plants are very productive and the beans themselves are string-less.


Growth Habit: Bush Bean, compact 18 inch plants 

Sun Requirements: Best in Full Sun

Soil Preference: Rich, well draining garden soil (balanced pH)

When to Plant:  Beans are frost sensitive & should be planted after the last expected frost. Cooler soil temperatures can hinder germination.

How to Plant: Soak bean seeds over night to quicken germination. Hoe out a shallow furrow, 1 inch deep. Space bean seeds every 2 inches. Cover seeds with soil & tamp down soil to improve contact with seeds. (Tamping also creates a trough that catches water, delivering it straight to the seeds!) Water thoroughly after planting. 

When to Harvest: Ready when beans are around 5-6 inches long & still smooth to the touch.

How to Harvest: Pick often to encouraged production, but also replant every three weeks for continual harvest.
