Interesting Info

Dwarf beans, also known as green beans, bush beans or French beans, are one of the most popular warm-season vegetables grown at home. Recommended varieties: Sodwana has an excellent yield potential with rust resistance; Strike is a summer bean with very high-yield potential and straight, smooth pods; Contender is a string less hybrid; Wintergreen is perfect for cool-season cultivation.


Beans require relatively little attention because of their short growing period. Watering with liquid manure every two weeks will ensure a longer picking period and superior quality beans. Water well during the flowering period.
