Common color & season
DescriptionIt is grown for the tender green beans and dry seeds. The pods are slender, 10-25 cm long, straight or slightly curved with prominent beak. Seeds are kidney shaped, elongated and white, red, purple or blackish in color or mottled. French bean requires mild worm weather for good yield. It is a day neutral crop except some few semi-pole varieties which are short day types. It is sensitive to frost and very high temperature. The optimum temperature ranging between 18-25 °C. It is also sensitive to high temperature and high rh. The plants shed their blossom or young pods in very hot or rainy weather. French bean is grown in variety of soils ranging from light sandy soils to clay soils but it can withstand water logging. The optimum soil Ph is between 5.3 And 6.0. High moisture content and high nitrogen caused delay in maturity. Staking is an important operation for pole beans. The bamboo sticks or other wooden sticks or branches which are locally suitable can be used for the support. If the plants are grown in rows, single stick of about 2m length should be fixed near the plant. If the plants are grown in hills, the twigs and branches will give good support. The crop is ready for first harvest in about 45 days after sowing. The green pods are to be picked when they are immature and fully grown but still tender. As the harvest is delayed, the total yield increases but the quality falls rapidly due to over maturity of pods, fiber development and rough surface. For More plants visit
