Green beans are not Great Northern Beans. Great Northern beans are a white bean related to Kidney and Pinto Beans They can be. See my addition on the discussion page.
Great Northern beans [ Phaseolus vulgaris ] are shell beans. There are varieties that can be grown as bush beans, others as pole. The basic growing difference is the supports …that pole beans need. Because of the supports, pole varieties take up less space. Within that space, they tend to have higher yields and summer long harvests. Plant after the last frost, when soil temperatures reach 65-70 degrees F . Use mildly acidic to neutral soil, in the 6.0-6.8 pH range. The soil needs to be well drained . Successful germination temperatures tend to fall in the 70-80 degree F range. Nitrogen fixing bacteria are advantages of such Leguminaceae family members as Great Northern beans. So intake of enough nitrogen doesn't tend to be a problem for beans and peas. NPK fertilizers, with lower nitrogen rates, therefore are preferred. Beans self pollinate . So every other row needs to be devoted to a plant other than beans. Bush beans need to be staggered every 2-4-6 inches in rows 18-24-36 inches apart. Harvest before beans dry. That means that the pods still are swollen. Containers grow four bush beans at one time, in one 18 inch space. Pole beans also are planted one inch deep. Poles need to be staggered every 6-12-15 inches, with beans planted one inch deep around each pole. They need to be staggered every 3-4 inches along a fence or trellis.
both the same time .. they are yummy ..thank you
Large white beans were grown for hundreds of years by the by theMandan, Arikara, and Hidatsa people of what is now North Dakota. Oscar H. Will (1855-1917) came to North Dakota… in the spring of1881 and was employed at Fuller Green House in Bismarck. Hepurchased the Fuller Green House on July 1, 1884, and also starteda nursery and seed business. He soon started his experiments withnative local plants. The seed company was first called Pioneer SeedHouse in 1897 and then Oscar H. Will & Company. Will's seedsserved farmers and gardeners around the world for more than 75years, reaching customers through a colorful, informative annualmail-order catalog, which had a circulation of 1,000 in 1881. In1883, Son of a Star, a Hidatsa man living at the Fort BerholdRevervation, gave Will a pouch of beans. From that pouch, Willselected beans that he bred over the next three years, developingwhat he named the Great Northern bean. He introduced it in 1896,and it became his company's most famous introduction. By 1917,Will's seed catalog had a circulation of 120,000.
