(Phaseolus vulgaris) Introduced around 1810, this is one of our oldest
documented beans. Named Lazy Housewife because
it was the first snap bean that did not need to
have the string removed. Vines bear heavily and
continuously until frost. Straight 5-6" long pods
with distinctive shiny white seeds. Pole habit, snap
or shell, 75-80 days.
Trellis, tepee or fencing
Green Thumb Tip
Sow seeds outdoors after danger of frost has
passed and soil and air temperatures have warmed.
Harvest dry beans when the pods are completely
mature and dry. ± 990 seeds/lb
