question about bush beans

Post  nycquilter on 7/16/2013, 6:46 pm

Hi everyone

the weather here is hot and sunny. You can almost watch the tomatoes grow! This year, I planted my usual pole beans and for an experiment, I also planted bush beans. I harvested really pretty purple haricots today. Am I correct in understanding that bush beans yield only one harvest? Should I pull the plants and put something else (maybe even more of the same) in their place?

Laurie

and, thanks in advance for the help Smile

I had two harvests out of my bush bean last year. The second was not as bountiful as the first.

Hi Laurie,

My Bush beans have produced many harvests already and still need picking about every other day.  I am told the more you pick the more they produce. Mine are the Blue Lake variety.

aha, thanks. I didn't know what to do so am now glad I didn't pull them up due to some vague (mis)remembering!
