A delightful green bean that’s excellent for home gardeners, commercial growers and pick your own operations. Jade consistently produces huge yields of 12.5-17.5 cm (5-7″) premium quality, tender and sweet, dark green pods. You’ll love the traditional bean flavour and its ability to produce longer in the season than other varieties. Excellent disease resistance to common mosaic and curly top virus!
How to Grow
4-5 seed per gram Beans tolerate a wide range of soil types. Their best growth is in light, organic, well drained soil with a pH of about 6.5. Beans have a distinct dislike for cold, wet soils, so sow seed only after the soil has warmed to at least 16 C (60 F). Sow 2.5 cm (1″) deep and 8 cm (3″) apart in rows spaced 45 to 70 cm (18 to 28″) apart. To ensure a continuous harvest, sow bush-type varieties every 10 days until mid-July. Keep beans evenly watered, particularly when the plants are in flower and when production of the pods start. Avoid the use of high nitrogen fertilizer. Nitrogen promotes excessive foliage. Avoid disturbing beans when leaves are damp to reduce the incidence of disease.
