Landreth Stringless Bean is an heirloom, open-pollinated bush bean variety that was introduced in 1885. This bush bean variety is truly stringless and fiberless. Upright plants are hardy and grow to 20-24" tall. Pods average 5" and are slightly curved. Landreth Stringless Bean is easy to snap and has a meaty taste that is delicious and filling. These beans are tender and taste great when snapped raw for a salad. They also maintain texture well when steamed or boiled and they are a perfect variety for preserving in jars or freezing. This is a great variety for the backyard garden or small-scale market farm.

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.

I grow these stringless beans every year!
Just one 30’ row will produce at least three good pickings!
I wash, dry, place on a cookie sheet, flash freeze and bag in gallon freezer bags and you can take out what you want and cook as needed…
AWSOME texture and flavor!!!
Best of all… No “string” to deal with!!!

What a bean

This bean outperformed every expectation I had. I received this in a tin collection. I do not can beans. I freeze them in a white cotton pillow case. I pick them straight off the vine. I do not wash them until I am ready to cook. This is the best tasting bean I have found. We will be putting this in our garden from now on.
