Lazy Housewife Beans

€2,50 EUR

A flavourful and prolific climbing heirloom bean

Lazy Housewife Beans are an American heirloom bean variety from the 1800's. The story goes that they are named after the wives of the early American settles in the United States which were famous for their laziness and grew these string less beans for the ease of harvest. The plants produce large prolific yields of green pods with white beans that can be eaten fresh or left to mature and dry to use in soups or stews.  The beans have a creamy texture and rich taste. 


Scientific Name: Phaseolus vulgaris

Plant Life Cycle: annual

Optimal Germination Temperature: 16 °C

Germination time in days: 8-16 days

Indicative Days to maturity: 65 Days

Sunlight: Full Sun

Soil requirement: well drained

Sowing and cultivation: Sow 3cm deep 8-10 cm apart around poles, trellis, or fence when danger of frost has passed and soil temperature is over 16C. Thinning to 20-30 cm apart apart. A strong, sturdy trellis such as a fence panel to support the plant foliage is recommended. Unlike bush beans which will stop producing after several harvests, pole beans will grow from spring until the first frost in fall or winter. Pole beans usually bear later than bush beans and generally give higher yields, usually bearing for six or more weeks
