Bush Beans

Our bean seeds are highly sought-after worldwide. And no wonder: Pop Vriend Seeds has more than forty years of experience in breeding the best bush bean varieties.

Fresh-market or processing: Pop Vriend Seeds has a specially designed variety for every region and customer. Traditionally we are the bush bean specialist. We offer a wide range of green, yellow, flat and round bush beans. Our beans are highly productive, have good colour, stable plants and easy picking characteristics for happy growers.

Pop Vriend Seeds develops bean varieties in close co-operation with its clients in the processing industry and the fresh-market. Every year we come up with new, innovative and marketable varieties. Our breeders have succeeded in developing bean varieties that are resistant to Halo blight, BCMV, Anthracnose and rust without losing their widely appreciated characteristics. Our innovations enable growers to achieve increased yields while reducing the use of fungicides.

Figures and information in this brochure are based on the average results of large scale plantings under European conditions and may vary with local environmental and agronomic conditions, grower skills, microclimate and soil structure. Resistance is the ability of a plant variety to restrict the growth and development of a specified pest or pathogen and/or the damage they cause when compared to susceptible plant varieties under similar environmental conditions and pest or pathogen pressure. Resistant varieties may exhibit some disease symptoms or damage under heavy pest or pathogen pressure.
