Émérite Filet Pole Bean

50-60 days. Now, Pole Bean enthusiasts can have their Filets and eat them, too! Émérite is a true Filet Bean from France, generously borne in cascading clusters on graceful vines growing to 8' tall. Pole Beans out-produce Bush Beans due to their protracted harvest and, in this case, what a harvest! Émérite sets heavy yields of uniformly slim, ¼"-wideFilet Beans. Special breeding work to slow seed production within the Bean allows harvest at any stage from teeny baby Filets to mature Filet Beans at 7" long. The vines are beautiful: delicate rose-pink blossoms contrast with the large, soft green, deeply-veined leaves. (OP.)

One packet contains about 60 seeds

  • Information
  • Vertically-growing Pole Beans are as perfect for small space gardens as they are in larger potagers accented with decorative supportive architecture. Before sowing seed in the spring, first install the structures through which they will weave their wondrous vines and yield their coveted Beans. Help train them as they grow for maximum coverage and harvest. Beans are native to South America: sow when soil has reliably warmed to 60°F or by the last frost date. Harvest straight to the kitchen at their optimal size for eating, usually when small. Pick filet types when thin. Don't wait until seeds form in their tender pods because by then, the sweetness, not to mention the tender-crispness, is lost.

    Average seed life: 2-3 years.
