High Mowing Organic Seeds - Unsurpassed French filet bean for gourmet markets.
Known for its long, slender, medium-green pods with a delicate tender texture. Heavy producer of 6-8" beans on good-sized plants. Maxibel will keep you loaded with fresh beans; pick frequently for optimal tenderness and yields. Some plants have runners. Speckled brown seeds.
Instructions - Beans only require average fertility and prefer pH in the 6.0 - 6.8 range. Choose well-drained, warm soils and use inoculants to increase yields where natural Rhizobia populations are low. The optimal soil temperature for germination is 75-95°F. Beans are particularly sensitive to cool soils and are prone to rot if temperatures are below 55°F. Harvest early and often to increase yields. Remove oversized beans to maintain pod production. Beans are ready for storage when the seed coat can not be dented by a fingernail. Store beans in a cool dry place.
