What's wrong (pic)?

julieann_growApril 13, 2007

At first I thought rust, but it does not rub off on a rag and looks like it is getting worse. This is Fortex bean. It happened right after the cold/wet snap we had with temps in the 40's. (I know that is not cold for many of you guys out there.:)

Can anyone id this for me please? And, what organic treatment would you recommend?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

My Kentucky Wonder beans did the same thing last week and after posting my problem on the forum I learned that it was due to the frost we had. In fact, I learned that you should cover all your beans for any temperatures under 40F, never water at night, and always water at the base. However, I was told that there isn't anything to worry about and new growth will come in just fine. Hope this helps and good luck! - Kara
