Munk's OS97 Bean

Botanical Name: Phaseolus vulgaris

$3.95

Out of Stock for 2017

Description

SOLD OUT FOR 2017. 55 days. Dark green, French filet bean that we got from our friend Munk Bergin, who just couldn’t stop talking about how much he loved them. Plants are bush type - so they don’t need a trellis - but are vigorous, tall, and compete well with weeds. Early beans are prolific, taste good raw, and are excellent cooked. Try them in Erica’s Mom’s recipe, lightly sautéed with garlic and toasted sesame oil – just scrumptious! Easily preserved by blanching and freezing. Let them stay on the vine to dry and you can easily save your own seeds for next year. Seeds grown by Nature & Nurture Seeds.

Growing

Growing Instructions (for USDA Zone 5b):

Sow bean seeds outside 5/15-7/15 (after soil temp has reached at least 60 °). Sow seeds 1” deep, 3” apart in rows 15” apart. Protect seedlings from slugs/snails (use caffeinated coffee grounds or organic phosphate based slug bait). Days to germination: 6-16. Protect plants from groundhogs & deer. Beans perform best if the seeds are inoculated with Bean Inoculant at planting time.

Harvest:

Harvest young pods frequently while still thin and tender. Pods left to mature will become tough.

Seed Saving Instructions (for gardeners):

Beans are an easy seed saving crop. They will not cross with other bean species and tend to self-pollinate. 10-20 ft between bean varieties is often good enough, 50 feet isolation distance is ideal. Minimum population size: 10 plants. Allow seeds to mature on the plants (pods will become tan and dry). Save seeds only from the best plants. Clean seed as a dry-seeded crop.
