The bean is a tender, warm season vegetable that ranks second to tomato in popularity in home gardens.
Bush Beans stand erect without support. They yield well and require the least amount of work. Green bush beans were formerly called “string beans” because fiber developed along the seams of the pods. Plant breeders have reduced these fibers through selection and green beans are now referred to as “snap beans.”
Pole Beans climb supports and are easily harvested.
