Phaseolus vulgaris ‘Flageolet Vert’ (Bush Bean) [15 Seeds]

$3.50

Germination Information: I suggest sowing the seeds directly in your garden or container, about 1 inch deep and 2 to 4 inches apart. The plants can reach to about 3 feet tall but tend to sprawl; giving them a bit of support helps to keep them upright.

Description

‘Flageolet Vert’ was a new bush bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) variety for me in 2019. I can’t speak from personal experience about its edible qualities, as I was trying to save as much of the harvest as possible, but from what I have read, the small, pale green seeds are supposed to have outstanding flavor as a dried bean. You can read more about the history of this rare French heirloom bean in this article: https://sites.google.com/site/knowyourvegetables/know-your-beans/know-your-flageolet-bean/flageolet-bean-history

The plants are rather compact, and I suspect they would grow well in containers, which would make harvesting the pods easier. Full sun. Annual.

Harvested in August 2019. At least 15 seeds. I grow out only a few bean varieties each year, to avoid cross-pollination, and I did not grow this one in 2020. Once these sell out, I will not have a fresh crop until the fall of 2021.
