Missouri Wonder

Out of stock

Introduced in the early 1930’s, Missouri Wonder Beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) were often grown in corn fields so the sturdy stalks could support them. Vigorous vines tolerate a wide range of conditions and produce flavorful, 6- to 7-inch pods in 70 days. Here are our best tips for Growing Beans, too!

Each packet contains approximately 40-60 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plant directly into rich, fast draining soil in spring after the soil has warmed. Sow 1 inch deep and 2-4 inches apart in rows 18-24 inches apart. Soaking 1-2 hours prior to planting will speed germination. Thin when seedlings emerge so that bush varieties are 5 to 6 inches apart; pole varieties 6 to 8 inches apart.

Pick often to keep plants productive; when harvesting immature pods you encourage new blooms to form. Look for firm, sizable pods and pinch off with your thumbnail and fingers.
