These hard-to-find, handsome yellow beans are true "haricot verts". Gorgeous slim, round 7 to 9 inch pods with a delicate, sweet flavor and a crispy snap. Especially choice eating. Heavy bearing, vigorous vines. Maturity 60 Day's.
START SEEDS OUTDOORS: In late spring, once night temperatures stay securely above 55°F (13°C), plant seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Erect strong stakes, tripod poles or trellis at planting time to support vines. Plant 1 inch deep and 4 inches apart along a trellis. Or grow around tripods or stakes, planting 4 to 6 seeds about 4 inches from each pole, then thinning seedlings to 3 best plants per pole.
GROWING NOTES: Beans are an easy and reliable crop, but don’t plant seeds too early; cold conditions prevent good germination. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away; new seedlings will catch up quickly. Birds are attracted to young seedlings; watch carefully and protect with netting if necessary. Avoid harvesting beans in wet conditions.
HARVEST AND USE: For the best yields, pick beans frequently, at least every 2 or 3 days. Filet beans are meant to be eaten when pods are slender, so harvest early, when still pencil-thin. These gourmet beans taste best freshly picked and quickly steamed or sautéed. For a beautiful and delicious. salad, blanch beans and toss them with an herbed vinaigrette, then combine with greens and Italian parsley.
