Care & Harvest

Green Beans should be thinned to one plant per yCube. Since Green Beans have a robust root system, we suggest checking the roots monthly and trimming any that are brown or extending past the yPod. Though this is a compact plant it may require support as it matures. We suggest using our Plant Belt to support the plant and its heavy fruit.

Green Beans need minimal pruning, snip any yellow or brown leaves if they appear. Flowers should develop in 4-6 weeks after sprouting. When they appear, help the plant with pollination by gently shaking the plant by hand replicating the effects of wind or gently disturb the inside of the blossom with your finger, or a small brush.

To harvest Green Beans, wait until it produces fleshy round pods that are about 5 inches long and generally as thick as a pencil. Snip the pods at the stem before they are fully mature and while they are still tender, usually 1-2 weeks after flowering. This variety of bush bean produces most of its fruit at once, but the plant will keep producing if harvested regularly.

Quick Facts

Beans originated in Peru and spread throughout the Americas by migrating Native tribes. Beans were a staple in Native diets, and were often grown alongside corn, with the cornstalks providing support to the climbing bean plants. Christopher Columbus brought these New World beans back to Europe in the late 1400s.  While early Green Beans were tough and stringy, plant breeders have made significant improvements to green bean flavor, texture, and growing properties since the late 1800s.

Green Beans have wide, heart shaped green leaves and produces white and pink/purple flowers. They contain many essential vitamins including A,C,K, B6, and B9 (Folate). Just one cup of raw Green Beans provides almost 10% of the daily recommended amount of Folate. Green Beans are also a rich source of Calcium, Silicon, Iron, Manganese, and Potassium. Legumes such as Green Beans are rich in antioxidants including Flavonols, Quercetin, and Kaemferol, which actively reduce the risk of chronic disease. Green Beans are also an excellent source of fiber!

Enjoy Green Beans freshly picked, steamed, sauteed, boiled, baked, pickled, grilled, or even fried. To preserve optimal nutrition, consume Green Beans fresh or lightly steamed.
