Calima Bush Beans

Our Calima Bush Beans are a must have in the garden, mainly for snacking while we’re working outdoors. Bush beans are easy to grow, do well in Zones 3-11, and don’t need poles to keep them upright. With a little organic boost and fish emulsion fertilizer, these plants are taking off and producing an abundance of pods. They are crispy, flavorful, and great for eating raw, cooking, or canning. Sow starter seeds indoors in mid-spring, or sow straight into the ground towards late spring when the weather warms up.

Calima beans are long like French beans, green, and should be picked when pencil width. Eat ‘em while you got ‘em, because if you miss the prime harvest (spring to summer), they’ll harden and lose their juiciness and flavor.

Happy munching!
