AAS Winner 1990

This All-American Selections Winner is a proven variety that has become a staple in vegetable gardens across the country. These high-producing bush beans are the green beans you've been searching for.

Derby green beans are sure to be a favorite in your summer garden. The 18-inch bush type plants are versatile, easy to grow, resistant to bean common mosaic virus (BCMV), and sturdy enough that they don't require support like runner beans do. And the long, straight, plump pods—up to 7-inches long—retain excellent quality. Easy to harvest, the beans practically slip off the stem without pulling on the plant.

Green beans are packed with protein and nutrients and are ideal for both eating fresh or preserving. Preserving green beans is easy. Simply can them with a pressure canner or freeze them to enjoy all winter long.

Sow seeds 1-inch deep, spaced 2 inches apart. Thin seeds so plants are 5 to 6 inches apart with 24- to 36-inch spacing between rows.

Plants can also be started indoors and planted outdoors after the risk of frost has passed. If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.

Germination time: 6-10 days.
