This bean bush grows 16-18 inches tall which is very compact compared to other bean varieties. The beans have a long harvest time and are light green and stringless. They should be harvested when the beans enlarge from within the pod.
This plant is ready to harvest when your bean pods swell, and it should be removed once your flowers start falling off.
Mascotte Bean Story
Phaseolus vulgaris is also known as Mascotte bean and is a symbol of good luck. This bean was more than lucky in 2014 when it won the All-American Selection award. A bean of any kind had not been a winner since 1991 which speaks a lot to how impressive this bean is in both flavor and ease of growing. It has an incomparable crunch that makes eating these beans raw a fresh and satisfying snack. Growing this in your Rise Garden will definitely make you feel like a winner because of the bountiful harvest of fresh delicious beans you will be able to share.
