Bush Snap Bean, Pisarecka Zlutoluske (Organic)
Phaseolus vulgaris. Yellow Pods. 50 days.
Heirloom wax bean with delicious, round, yellow pods on sturdy plants. Beans can be picked small or large, as the wonderful flavor and nice yellow color develop when the pods are young. Super productive, early maturing, and cold tolerant variety that is perfect for the Pacific Northwest. Probably a Czech variety, the name translates to ‘Yellow Podded from Pisarky.’ It came our way via Seed Dreams in Port Townsend, Washington.
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.
Some cross-pollination may occur, but beans mostly self-pollinate.
