I have been growing veggies for few years now and I have been fairly successful with Okras, Brinjal, tomatoes, greens, etc. But I have never been successful with French Beans. I tried growing the bushy plant variety of this plant and all that I get is just 4-5 beans per plant. After this, I see that the leaves wither off and the plant dies off. Is there any special considerations for growing beans? Am in Chennai and will it not grow in Chennai?

French beans are delicious and easy to grow in small gardens. They make great finger food for children, and are ideal for anyone who doesn’t like the ‘stringy’ bits in runner beans! A few plants will reward you with a reliable crop and they come in a variety of colours – as well as the usual green French bean, there are cream French beans, yellow French beans, flecked French beans and purple French beans that all look as good as they taste.
