START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In late spring, once night temperatures stay securely above 55°F (13°C), plant seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Erect strong stakes, tripod poles or trellis at planting time to support vines. Plant 1 inch deep and 4 inches apart along a trellis. Or grow around tripods or stakes, planting 4 to 6 seeds about 4 inches from each pole, then thinning seedlings to 3 best plants per pole.

 

GROWING NOTES

Beans are an easy and reliable crop, but don’t plant seeds too early; cold conditions prevent good germination. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away; new seedlings will catch up quickly. Birds are attracted to young seedlings; watch carefully and protect with netting if necessary. Avoid harvesting beans in wet conditions.

 

HARVEST AND USE

For the best yields, pick beans frequently, at least every 2 or 3 days. Filet beans are meant to be eaten when slender, so harvest pods early, when they are still pencil-thin. These elegant gourmet beans taste best freshly picked and quickly steamed or sautéed. For a delicious salad, quickly cook the beans until just tender crisp, then combine with salad greens and Italian parsley and toss with a simple herb vinaigrette.
