EXCLUSIVE – Juicy-sweet and meaty with wonderful crunchy texture, Musica is the earliest, most productive pole bean we’ve ever grown. Best of all, these broad, flat, 7 to 9 inch long pods have unsurpassed rich flavor. Bred originally for European home gardeners, Musica’s vigorous, robust vines climb quickly and effortlessly and produce heavily. Keep these plump, great tasting pods picked and plants will pump out more beans than you thought possible.

START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In spring once weather is warm and 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 seeds 1 inch deep and 4 inches apart along a trellis, or if planting around tripods or stakes, plant 4 to 6 seeds 4 inches from each pole, thinning seedlings to 3 best plants.

 

GROWING NOTES

Tender, crispy beans are an easy, reliable crop to grow, but don’t plant too early, as weather under 50°F (10°C) prevents good germination. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away; new seedlings catch up quickly. Birds are often attracted to young bean seedlings, so watch carefully and protect with netting or floating row covers if necessary. Avoid cultivating plants or picking pods when plants are wet.

 

HARVEST AND USE

Musica vines are heavy bearing, so harvest often: the more you pick, the more beans plants will produce. Harvest when beans are 7-9 inches long, but before seeds are swelled in pods. Slice up and cook just until tender to enjoy their sweet nutty flavor and juicy texture. Serve hot, or let the cooked beans cool, then toss with herbed vinaigrette for a delicious green bean salad.
