Beans are reliable plants to grow and provide abundant harvests of crisp, juicy pods. Begin with the different colors and flavors of bush snap beans which are ready to pick first with more concentrated harvests, followed by sustained harvests of pole beans which mature a little later. Check plants and pick pods every other day for best quality during the height of the harvest. We also offer easy to grow Edamame Beans, and Heirloom Dry Beans.
All beans grow comfortably in well-drained garden soils and are a good source of vitamins A and C, calcium, and iron. Beans, like peas, are legumes whose roots are homes for nitrogen-fixing bacteria, so growing them actually enriches your soil.
