When the pods snap and break in half cleanly, the beans are ready for harvest. Usually, this occurs just after the seeds have begun to form and the pods are 6 to 8" in length. To harvest, hold the stem in one hand and the pod in the other. Avoid pulling off the branches, as they may continue to produce pods.
