Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors after danger of frost has passed
and soil and air temperatures have warmed. Harvest
snap beans frequently for increased yields. Shell
beans should be picked when the seeds are plump in
the pods. Leave some pods on the vine and harvest
when completely mature for dry beans. ± 610 seeds/lb
