green bean varieties resistant to Mexican bean beetles

Pests & Pathogens

I’m putting together a collection of green beans that have some reported resistance to Mexican bean beetles. Getting ahead of this pest in our organic community garden is going to be one of my things to focus on this summer. They are voracious!

Some resistant varieties are listed here at the Weekendgardener. Our community gardeners have come across others. Varieties include:
Emerite, Logan, Wade, Black Valentine and Chinese yard long beans

I’ve ordered some of each of these for our community gardeners to try. Growing in our garden will be a serious test of bean beetle resistance!

Please leave a comment if anyone aware of any other resistant varieties of green beans.
