Bean Bush – Sunray/Idelight

55 Days | This dwarf bush bean, known variously as Sunray, Idelight, and Gourmet Delight, is extremely popular with gardeners in Australia and New Zealand, but nearly unheard-of in the US. Called a dwarf bush because of its average height of under 18″ tall, Sunray grows 6″ beans near the top of the bush. Stringless, with a rounded appearance similar to a Blue Lake, this very productive bean often produces over 2 lb. per plant. This bean is BCMV, curly top, and drought tolerant, allowing it to be grown in most soils unless waterlogged, as well as being good for container and box gardens due to its small size.Packet contains about 50 grams of seed.All orders include a handling fee, however orders with only “free shipping” items will have no further charges. Plus shipping items will include postage depending on size of the order.

Dwarfs are earliest and most hardy. In garden culture, beans are usually planted about 2 inches deep in rows 20 inches apart, and 3 inches apart in the row, in field culture, in drill rows 20 to 30 inches apart to cultivate with tractor. Until blossoming season, frequent but shallow cultivation should be given.Deep cultivation after the plants show bloom is very apt to ruin the crop. Do not disturb plants when covered with dew. One pound will plant 100 feet of drill, and sixty pounds is sufficient for one acre of dwarf bush types. Allow 50 foot row per person. To afford a regular succession of crops throughout the season, plant every two weeks after the first planting until midsummer.
