Desperado is so easy to grow. These high quality straight pod beans are disease resistant, well adapted for heat and stress. Their long and bright green color is protected against wind scar and thrips damage. This bean has a high yield and tastes delicious. Bountiful 16–20" plants produce dense sets of super-tasty 5½" dark-green pods. Thanks to slow-to-develop seeds, beans have more energy to produce taste-boosting sugars and flavonoids. Upright, well-adapted, bush-style plants don’t mind the heat; highly resistant to mosaic virus.

  • Plant bean seedlings to 6 to 8 inches apart, and begin training them up a pole or other support from a young age. If picked promptly, the crop should continue through fall, until nipped back by cold weather.

    During the growth, mulch the plants in well to keep moisture in the soil. Beans are shallow-rooted, and they can be watered several times a week in the heat of the summer. Light feeders, they actually improve the soil as they grow, helping fix nitrogen that plants need for optimal growth.
