Harvesting information: Beans are quick to produce fruit ready for harvest, and the more frequently beans are harvested, the more veggies the plants will develop.
As you can expect, harvesting beans is not a difficult task. You simply grab a bean and firmly snap the stem at the top. The bigger question, however, is knowing when to grab a bean off of a plant. If you harvest a bean too early, there won’t be much to harvest but the bean will be crisp and sweet, if you harvest a bean too late there will be a sizable harvest, however, the fruit will have become tough and woody. The sweet spot is usually somewhere in the middle, where the beans have grown to a large enough scale where it’s worth harvesting them, but are still young enough to retain their crisp sweetness.
