When Are Green Beans Ready to Pick?

Answer

Green beans are ready for collecting when young and slender after a time of around 2 months. This however varies according to the type and variety grown. In the case of pole beans, collecting should be done between 50 and 60 days from the time the seedlings sprout then bush beans picking should be done in the range of 50 and 55 days. That is when one gets the best out of them. One can also use personal judgment and pick when they seem just about the right size.
