Bush Snap Bean, Labrador (Organic)

Phaseolus vulgaris. Green Pods. 60 days.

Dark green, round, stringless snap bean on upright plants. Labrador has good sweet flavor with a tender crunch. Uniform, 5½” long beans are good for processing. With a longer than average shelf life and continual harvest window, this variety is a great choice for market growers. Bred by Asgrow in 1984, this high quality commercial snap bean has been nearly dropped from the seed trade. The PVP expired in 2004 and Labrador snap bean is now in the public domain. Resistant to anthracnose and bean common mosaic virus. Given to us during our 2006 Seed Ambassadors trip by Christina Henatsch, a seed grower and breeder for Bingenheimer Saatgut, a German biodynamic seed company.

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.
