SKU: BbSle Categories: ,


50 Seeds per pack

(a.k.a. Slankette) (Phaseolus vulgaris) 53-56 days.   Snap Bean     Beautiful and bountiful the two words that best describe the Slenderette Bush Green Bean. Vigorous, erect 14-20″ plants hold pods well up off the ground protecting them from the soil. Dark green 5-6″ pods are long, slender, and straight with a slight curve at the end. Pods develop fiber slowly, making this a great stringless green bean. High quality, great flavor, excellent for cooking, canning, freezing, and fresh eating! Disease resistance: BCMV, NY15, PMV, and CTV. 

Planting Instructions for Slenderette Bean Seeds

Sow beans 1-2″ deep, 2-6″ apart, in rows 18-36″ apart, in full sun after danger of frost. Soaking bean seeds in water 1-2 hours before planting speeds germination. Germination occurs in 4-16 days in soil 60-85°F. Provide support for heirloom pole bean varieties. For snap beans, harvest when beans are 3-6″ long. For dry beans, leave pods on plants until pods are dry, brown, and crisp, and beans are hard and rattle in pod, if more drying is needed when danger of frost has arrived, pick pods or pull entire plant and hang upside down to dry further.

    Only one bean has come up. Even soaked them prior to planting. Don’t have a green thumb so it’s probably something I did.
