FREE SHIPPING in the contiguous 48 United States

A high yielding, all-purpose snap bean! Introduced in 1897 by Peter Henderson and Company, Jacob’s Cattle is an excellent heirloom variety with tasty pods. Also makes a fine dry soup bean. (53 days)

Each packet contains approximately 4o-60 seeds.

Planting Instructions:
Sow beans 1 to 2 inches deep when danger of frost is past. Soaking seeds 1 to 2 hours before planting will speed germination. Beans will rot if soil is too cold or very damp. Sow bush-types 6 to 12 inches apart in beds, pole-types 6 inches apart in rows. Provide support for poll-types.

Harvest for snaps when pods are good sized; keep snaps well picked, as production slows as seed matures. All varieties of strings will develop in over-mature pods.

Heirloom Seeds are Shipped FREE!
