Description

The bush bean is a cold-sensitive legume. Since bush beans belong to the legumes, they can go into symbiosis with nitrogen-fixing bacteria and are therefore a good preculture for crops requiring nutrients. The different varieties vary in bean size and color.

Origin:

Central America

Growing tips

Direct sowing in eyries or rows is possible until mid-July. The stability is increased by sowing in eyries and by regular hoeing around the plants. During the main harvest period you can harvest the ripe pods every three days. If you cover the seedlings with fleece or foil, early sowing is possible, even if temperatures are still low. Nitrogen fertilization is not necessary, because the nodule bacteria fix nitrogen to the roots.
