Bronco Bean is an open-pollinated, fresh market bush bean variety with high yields on medium to large plants. Bronco produces glossy, green pods that are best when picked around 5-5.5" long. The pods are round and straight and store well after harvesting.
Bronco Bean is widely-adapted for a broad range of growing zones and growing conditions. The pods are set high on the plants for quick and easy harvesting. This is a great variety for fresh eating or canning in jars to preserve the harvest.
Beans should be planted in spring after the last frost has occurred. Beans will germinate best once soil temps have reached 65 F or higher. Optimal germination temperature is around 77 F. Seeds can require 8 to 16 days to germinate, depending on the soil temperature. For continual production, succession plant every couple of weeks throughout the spring and early summer. Plants will drop blooms or cease production in the heat of summer. Subsequent succession plantings may be made in late summer/fall, as long as enough time is permitted before the first frost date.
Direct seeding is recommended. We suggest using a #6 plate on the Hoss Garden Seeder and modifying the hole size (if necessary) to fit the seed size. Beans should be planted relatively thick along the row and thinned to the desired spacing. To maximize garden space, consider using a double-row spacing. For double-row spacing, rows may be planted as close as 6" apart with 3' spacing between double rows. For single row spacing, 2' to 3' spacing is recommended.
