Not required

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70° ?85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before first fall frost. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, sow as recommended above but skip the heat of summer as daytime temperatures consistently above 90°F will cause bean flowers to drop off (no bean formation).

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Harvesting: Ferrari snap beans are ready to pick when the pod "snaps" or breaks in half cleanly. This is when the seeds have just begun to form and the pods are 4"-5" long. Hold the stem with one hand, and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches, which will continue to produce. At season's end, plants are great compost material if they are disease-free.
