  • Pick beans regularly to encourage continued production.

Culinary Use: French Delight beans are versatile in the kitchen, suitable for both fresh and cooked applications.

  • Enjoy fresh in salads for their crisp texture and delicate flavor.
  • Steam or sauté lightly to preserve their nutty taste and vibrant color.
  • Incorporate into casseroles, stir-fries, and soups for added depth and nutrition.

    How to Grow:

    These beans are best harvested when the green pods reach a length of 15-17 cm (6-7 inches) for fresh snap beans. As they mature, the pods develop a lumpy texture and transition in color from green to red with yellow streaks. Once fully matured, the shelled beans are perfect for baking and soups, featuring beige-brown seeds. The maturity cycle spans 64 days.

    To cultivate:

    • Directly sow the seeds in a sunlit area during late spring after the threat of frost has subsided and the soil has warmed to at least 18°C (65°F).
    • For a continuous harvest, sow seeds every two weeks.
    • Plant at a depth of 3.75 cm (1.5 inches) with a spacing of 10 cm (4 inches) between seeds.
    • Thin the seedlings to maintain a distance of 20 cm (8 inches) apart.
    • Maintain row widths of 60 cm (24 inches).
    • While this variety may produce runners, staking is typically unnecessary. It thrives in deep, well-drained organic soil, but caution is advised as bean seeds are susceptible to rotting in colder-than-recommended soil temperatures.
    • Pkt Contains 50+/- Seeds, Approx 20-22 grams.


  • Store freshly harvested beans in the refrigerator for up to one week.
