Maxi Filet Bush Bean

50 days. An authentic haricot vert, our Maxi Filet Bush Bean is the top pick for fine restaurants growing their own fresh vegetables. It boasts of early maturity, dependability, high yields and great flavor. A highly coveted haricot vert rarely found at any market, Maxi's tender, flavorful, slender Green Beans emerge above its foliage on upright bushes for easy harvest. Just snip off the cherished Beans when they are between 1/6" and 1/4" wide and about 7" long~no bigger. These elegant Beans are the ultimate in taste, appearance and texture, perfectly presented when just lightly steamed with a hint of good butter and sea salt. (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.
