Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late spring/early summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Train to climb a vertical support. Harvest pods at 7-9" long and when beans just start to bulge in the pods. Plants produce heavily if harvested diligently.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Toss into Italian pasta dishes, stir-fries or soups. Delicious fresh, steamed, sautéed or fried tempura style. Beans can be frozen and dried for shell bean.
