‘Jade’ is a favorite of gardeners for its consistently long, straight, stringless pods that are tender and sweet with a beautiful, dark green color. Upright, bushy plants hold the pods high, avoiding tip rot. In addition to being very productive, these plants are more heat and cold tolerant than other types, are resistant to bean common mosaic viruses 1 and NY15, and tolerant to curly top virus and rust. Plants grow up to 14″-18″ tall and 8″-10″ wide. Botanical Interests’® Jade Bush Bean Seeds are USDA Organic and have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
This packet sows up to 21 feet.
55 days to maturity.
Outdoors: Sow 1-2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F.
For Successive Sowings: Sow every 7-14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.
Indoors: Not recommended, as bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.
