Snap Beans Growing Well

Posted by romeethredge on April 10, 2015

 Snap Beans are growing well. We have over 2 thousand acres here to be machine picked (thankfully, no aching backs) according to local Snap Bean expert, Brian Higgins.

 These in the photos below with grower, Brad Thompson, were planted on March 15, so they are only 26 days old and they will soon be producing buds and flowering.

They are a fast crop, with 60 days from planting to harvest, and then cotton or another crop can go in.  It’ll probably be quicker with the heat units they are accumulating this year.

If you want to grow some in your garden, here’s a link to the UGA Home Garden Green Bean Guide.  Here’s a link to the UGA Commercial Snap Bean Production publication.
