Bush Snap Bean, Cupidon (Organic)

Phaseolus vulgaris. Green Pods. 55 days.

As vegetable growers we used to be less than excited about filet beans until we found Cupidon. Not only is it the best filet bean we’ve found, it is one of the best beans, period. Delicious, aromatic sweet flavor. High yielding, light green, stringless, long, slender, French filet type pods. Plants can grow to 2′ tall if irrigated and fertilized well, while yielding lots of pods over a long season. Our favorite trait of Cupidon is that the pods are tasty even when they are very large. A good variety for market growers and gardeners because the fruit are held high on the plant for easy harvest. Resistant to Bean Common Mosaic Virus 1. We received our original seed from the wonderful folks at Real Seeds in Wales.

Direct sow 1″ deep beginning early May in rows that are 1′ apart. Thin seedlings to 3-6″ spacing. Protect early sowings from frost. Succession sowing every 3 weeks through late June will ensure continual harvest. Shell seeds from fully dry pods by hand or by dancing on pods. Winnow to clean. Test for dryness with a hammer – dry beans shatter.

Seed Saving

Some cross-pollination may occur, but beans mostly self-pollinate.

    Excellent Green Bean

    Where did you grow this variety? Oregon

    We grew these for the first time in 2020 and they did very well. Thin, tasty beans that don’t get tough even when they are quite long. No strings to speak of and very prolific. Will be growing these again in 2021.
