Royal Horticulture Society Award of Garden Merit
An all-around superior performer, Algarve, a gourmet French pole bean, sets plentiful pea-shaped white flowers in spring, followed by masses of very uniform, thin mid-green pods that reach up to 10 inches long and have a tender bite with phenomenal, award-winning flavor. Completely stringless, they are smooth and attractive, looking as good as they taste.
This herbaceous tender annual is a vigorous, very robust indeterminate variety, growing vertically as a graceful flowering vine that requires support, such as our bean growing tower or natural bamboo ring set., creating height and dimension in the garden. The vine may be allowed to trail along the ground. Maintaining a small footprint, the plant produces high yields for about a month that are easy to harvest and earlier than most. Promptly pick beans before the seeds mature to keep the beans coming.
A shallow-rooted plant, Algarve prefers a sunny location with moist, fertile, organically rich, well-drained loams. It is resistant to common bean mosaic virus. Self-pollinating, it will bear fruit without any pollen from other varieties.
A warm-season vegetable, sensitive to cold temperatures and frost, it is best direct-sown into warm spring soil after all danger of frost has passed. Succession plant every two weeks until about mid-August to ensure a continual harvest.
Algarve French bean seeds can also be started indoors and planted outdoors after the risk of frost has passed. If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
