Heirloom Organic Yellow Pencil Pod Bush Bean Seeds (10)

Pencil Pod is an heirloom variety popular with gardeners since it was introduced in 1900. The "slim as a pencil", curved yellow pods are 6" long, stringless and tender. Unlike green beans, these black-seeded yellow wax snap beans are easy to see among the foliage. Grow in the ground or in containers. Disease resistant.We find that pencil pod beans have a finer texture and more buttery flavor than green beans. The round pods are good for fresh eating--exceptional at the pencil-thin stage. Pods can be left to mature and the black beans stored for use as a dry bean.

Heirloom from the 1900s the Pencil Pod is nicely rounded, slim, and elongated. It is a heavy producer which yields over a long period. The flavor is sweet and juicy. The contrast of yellow pods and green leaves is an attractive feature in the mid-summer garden. Seeds are black.

PLANTING
Phaseolus vulgaris
Germination: 4-10 days
Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF
Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep
Outside Sowing: After the last frost with soil temperatures above 60ºF. Sow 2-3” apart. Planting in soil under 60ºF results in poor germination.
How much does a packet plant: 25 foot single row
Harvest: Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually every 2-3 days to prolong production.
Tips: Grow in light, well-drained soil, provide adequate, even moisture, especially at flowering time. Dry soil can result in low yields and fibrous pods. Do not over fertilize with nitrogen which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding innoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants. Sow a few times a season, 3-4 weeks apart for a continuous harvest.
