Mid-season variety (120 days). The plant is powerful, 80-100 cm high. The pods are large, with 4-6 beans. The beans are white with a greenish tint.
1g = 1-2 seeds.
Beans grow well on loamy, clayey, slightly acidic soils with sufficient moisture.
The best predecessors of beans are cabbage, potatoes, pumpkin and various root crops.
The soil for beans is dug up in autumn on a spade bayonet. Humus, mineral fertilizers are introduced. Before sowing, the seeds are soaked for 2-4 hours in water.
Then the seeds are sown in moist soil to a depth of 6-8 cm in a tape method with a distance between the tapes of 50-60 cm and between rows in the tape - 25-30 cm.
The distance between plants in a row is 3-5 cm.
Further plant care consists in loosening, regular feeding, light hilling and watering in dry weather. At the beginning of mass flowering, the tops of the shoots are cut off. This contributes to the uniform ripening of the beans and is a means of combating black bean aphids. Harvesting of beans is carried out in several stages: at the stage of milky ripeness of the grain, and fully ripened beans are harvested for winter consumption. Green beans contain a lot of vitamin B, PP, carotene (up to 2.5%).
Stability: Cold resistant.
