Question Fastest growing beans?

My son has decided to grow beans in different types of mediums for his science fair project. We only have about five weeks. Which beans are hearty and grow the fastest?

Default It depends

It depends on the climate and how much rainfall. But on average I'm pretty sure it would be the Mung bean or the Lima Bean.

Default Growing beans

Perhaps it will be possible to germinate the beans in some damp cotton wool. Otherwise, you could use some moist soil. But yes, like Satfire, I would also like to know how you originally intended to grow the beans...

Default Oh yeah

Germinating them is a cool way to grow plants, but I think growing them naturally would yeild the most accurate results.

We ended up buying wax beans today. The package stated they should sprout in 7-10 days. We've soaked them in a paper towel and wrapped that towel in plastic to sit overnight. We are going to plant them tomorrow night. I read that if they soak for 24 hours it helps them grow a little quicker. He'll plant 4 beans in seed started, 4 beans in 'dried blood' and 4 beans in sand. The assignment is more an exercise in the scientific method. Next year, he'll be expected to expand on this experiment. Thanks!
