Planting and Harvesting Tips:
This cool season crop thrives in sandy, fast draining soil and full sun. Sow in spring, no deeper than one inch and 2-3 inches apart in all directions. For bush types, space rows two feet apart; space climbing varieties in rows three feet apart or in double rows 6-8 inches apart with a trellis, fence, etc. Allow three feet between each double row.
Harvest pods when they are plump — usually three weeks after flowers appear — then shell and eat immediately; pods that are discolored or shriveled are past their prime. Harvest daily to keep plants productive.
