White beans grow in well-aerated and drained soils with a PH of 6 to 6.8. The plant requires a lot of water and warm weather for a good yield. 

There are two types of Egypt white beans; type I and type II. The two varieties are grown during different seasons. Type I is grown from December to April, which is usually the winter season. Type two grows during summer, that is, mid-May to October.

For the edible pod beans, the collection is best done while they are young. When they start to ripen, they are best picked daily as the wait can result in toughening/hardening. The beans should also be harvested free of moisture to prevent diseases. When plucked, the seeds should be refrigerated unwashed in air-tight containers and only removed as they are being used. Chilled green beans can only stay fresh for up to four days. For more extended storage periods, the pods can be blanched, prickled or canned and frozen.  

For dry beans, they should be harvested when they are dry and hard before they split. Upon collecting the seeds are removed from the pods. The seeds are then packaged and stored in a cool and dry place.
