GREEN BEAN Picking

More About GREEN BEAN Picking

Green Bean season begins in July and will be available through the first frost, which is usually early October. At Stade’s, we plant green beans every week in the spring and summer. Green beans grow very well in the climate and soils of Northeastern Illinois making them one of our favorite crops.

Be sure to sign up for our email updates and we’ll let you know the exact date our green beans will be ready for picking. Watch our website and Facebook as well as our Newsletter for more information.

How to Pick Green Beans

Green Beans are generally ready to harvest once they reach a length of approximately four inches, and the diameter is about the size of a pencil.
Green beans should be firm, crisp, and show no visible bulges. A bulge indicates that the green bean is overripe. Overripe beans will lose their sweetness and become fibrous. A perfectly ripe green bean will make a snapping noise when broken into pieces. This is why we call green beans, “snap beans.”

Once you have found a green bean you want to pick, grasp it firmly up near the top where it connects to the vine. Use the other hand to support the vine and pinch the pod to take it off the vine. Be careful not to break the plant or snap the bean in half.

The blossom end of the stem will usually still be attached to the bean after you pick it. The plants will continue to produce green beans over a long period of time; therefore, great care should be taken to not damage the plant when picking green beans. Pulling too hard can break the rest of the branch, stopping further bean production.
