Nickel Baby Filet Bush Bean

60 days. Imagine a platter of perfect baby Filet Beans, lightly steamed, gleaming bright green, glistening with a touch of the finest olive oil! This is the Nickel haricot vert, originating in France. This Filet reliably produces lots of incredibly straight, uniform baby Beans, approximately 1/4" in diameter, with no strings attached! Erect plants hold the dark green Beans well off the ground. Ideal for market gardeners too, Nickel produces a concentrated harvest: most of the Beans are ready at about the same time. Nickel is hardy and stress-tolerant, but as with all Filets, sow when soil has thoroughly warmed. Best harvested at 4" in length and 1/2" in diameter. (OP.)

  • Information
  • Beans are the mainstay of the kitchen garden: both easy and rewarding. Store-bought can't compare with home-grown Beans; modest toil and small Bean patches yield large returns. To satisfy zee french in you, here are five haricots verts or ultra-slim filet types, difficult to find at the market and coveted by chefs everywhere. 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.
