Bush Shelling Bean Seed

Shelling beans are normally grown for the seeds or 'beans', as the pods are often stringy. Try using them fresh or dry for later use. Bush beans (called 'dwarf' beans in Europe) are popular for their more compact size, and concentrated harvest. Bean seed should be planted about 1 inch deep in rows 2-3 feet apart. Best germination is achieved when soil temperatures are 70-90 F. SPECIAL CAUTION: Untreated bean seed is particularly susceptible to failure if planted in soil that is too cool or wet. Because of the concentrated harvest of bush beans, you can extend your season by sowing successive crops 2-3 weeks apart.
