Bush Snap Bean, Saxa (Organic)

Phaseolus vulgaris. Green Pods. 50 days.

Early maturing, strong bushes yield heavy with 4-5″ green beans. A popular old variety in Germany and the Netherlands. Very tolerant of poor weather and growing conditions. Excellent rich flavor that is missing in many modern varieties. Best picked when pods are young. We obtained this variety from the biodynamic seed company Bingenhiemer Saatgut when visiting Germany in 2007.

Geographical Origin

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.
