Emerite Pole Bean Seed Pack
Slower to turn bulgy and stringy than American-style green beans, Emerite, a pole French filet bean, these slender pole beans stay tender even when picked a bit late.
Be sure to provide a trellis while plants are still very young; pole beans yield generously as long as they are allowed to grow vertically.
-Direct sow seeds and thin to 6 inches when plants have their first set of true leaves. Provide a sturdy trellis early for beans to grab hold of. This variety can reach 6 feet high and will yield crunchy and succulent beans over several weeks. Harvest when beans are taught, but before seeds are discernible.
-Days to germination: 3-7 days. Days to maturity: 75 days.
