The Daily Veggie (1.02)

Haricot Vert "Maxibel"
Phaseolus vulgaris
20-24 in.

Long, pencil-thin stringless beans with exquisite, delicate flavor. Direct plant 6 seeds/ft in rows 18-36 in. apart when danger of frost has passed. Beans do better when inoculated with rhizobial bacteria (available at garden centers) prior to planting. Enrich soil with mature compost. During germination, keep evenly moist and warm. Keep well watered through maturity, allowing surface to dry between waterings. For fresh eating, pick when pods are at peak color. -SOC

Heavy producer of uniform dark green fancy 6-8" pods of exceptional length, ramrod straightness and superb taste. “Heavenly, over-the-top, stupendous,” coos Sandy Jennings of Cincinnati, OH. For maximum tenderness and most succulent flavor pick early and often. A gourmet market specialty. Speckled brown seed. -FED
