Seeding of the Soissons bean occurs when the frosts are no longer to be feared and the earth is warmed. May Day is the reference date for planting the crop. The saying of the gardener said "beans sown at St Didier, beans full basket ...! ". The Soissons bean is a rustic crop that requires little see no phytosanitary treatments. Producers are close to the environment and promote mechanical weeding. Hilling on the row is recommended when the plant reaches 10 to 20 cm high (the first two leaves spread). Water and heat are key elements in the successful development of this legume. Harvesting is done by hand when the pod is dry and the seed is ripe. The pod is gently unhooked from its stem and then stored in a breast and ventilated place. It takes place between October 1st and November 15th depending on weather conditions and areas to harvest.
