Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plant these warm weather legumes directly into rich, fast draining soil in spring after the soil has warmed. Sow 2-4 inches apart — one inch deep — in rows 24-36 inches apart. Thin as plants develop to 4-8 inches.
Harvest when full grown and ripe. Look for firm, sizable pods and pinch off with your thumbnail and fingers. Boil for at least 5 minutes before eating — do NOT eat raw!
