Southern Exposure Seed Exchange - Grown in Pennsylvania for many years, “Lanco” is thought to stand for Lancaster County. May have come from Asia in the early 1900s. Large green seeds, mild nutty sweet flavor. Hardy plants may grow 3-4 feet tall if seeded early. Early group V maturity.
Instructions - Harvest beans when the tops of the plants start to lose their deep green color, but before the leaves start to turn yellow on top. (There will always be a few yellow leaves at the very bottom of the plants, that’s natural.) Don’t wait until the beans fill out all the way to the end of the pods, this variety won’t do that. After the soil has warmed to 65 degrees F, sow seeds 1 in. deep and 2+ in. apart, in rows 15-30 in. apart. Quality is best when the pod is plump and bright green, similar to snow peas in color.
Cooking - Most often served steamed in the shell, but do not eat the shell. Beans reach their maximum sweetness about a month after flowering.
