Desperado is so easy to grow! These high quality straight pod beans are disease resistant, well adapted for heat and stress. Their long and bright green color is protected against wind scar and thrips damage. This bean has a high yield and tastes delicious!

During the growth, mulch the plants in well to keep moisture in the soil. Beans are shallow-rooted, and they can be watered several times a week in the heat of the summer. Light feeders, they actually improve the soil as they grow, helping fix nitrogen that plants need for optimal growth. And after you harvest the last delicious bean, be sure to chop up the plants and plow them right back into the soil. You'll have a great head start on next year's crop by building up the soil.

Direct-sow the seeds into the warm spring soil after all danger of frost has passe. Space them about 2 to 4 inches apart, setting the seeds about 2 inches below the soil line and covering well. (Be sure to plant extra for the birds -- they will take their share whether you want them to or not!) Thin the seedlings to 6 to 8 inches apart, and begin training them up a pole or other support from a young age. If picked promptly, the crop should continue through fall, until nipped back by cold weather.

High yield and great taste!

This bush type bean grows quickly and well in full sun and yields a bounty of tender green beans. From about a ten square foot planting, we harvested almost 15 lbs of green beans. These were picked over about a one month period. Plants were disease and insect resistance and the beans were almost 100% perfect. Will definitely plant again next year.
