Developed by the University of Wisconsin, these bush beans begin producing a heavy yield 54 days after sowing. The stringless green beans are a generous size, growing to 6.5 inches long, and the plants continue producing for weeks when harvested regularly.
Plant your white bush bean seeds 1 inch deep and 2 to 4 inches apart in rows. These bush beans need full sun all day.

They grow to a height of 22 to 28 inches and need no supporting trellises or stakes. Only shallow cultivation is needed to remove weeds and grass.
