Ed's Special Advice
Harvest pods daily as they are most tender and delicious when eaten young with the pods still nearly flat. It's best to provide some string, fence or trellis support to keep vines off the ground and conserve garden space. When possible, plant rows in a north-south direction for best sun exposure and good air circulation. Sow for fall crop in late July.
