Excellent Pole Bean
by Christopher F.
I've been growing these for several years now in central NC. Except for one year when I lost the battle with the rabbits, these have been steadfastly reliable and provided good quality beans.
As a novice gardener I planted late in the season, and in rows as if they were a bush bean. Plants found a way to make it to the nearby chicken wire and produce in spite of my mistakes.
Beautiful, prolific beans!
Love these beautiful, prolific beans! I am picking buckets full daily. Excellent flavor even the ones that get to 8" long.
A Big Hit in Ohio
by Bridgette Mills-Echevarria
Tried these for the first time, growing them in zone 6 southwest Ohio. They are awesome, producing a new batch of beans over and over again after harvesting. I've been picking them when they are going and tender, about the diameter of my pinky, but even when they get a little larger they are still tasty. Nice fresh taste, tender texture without getting mushy when cooked. Plan for plenty of climbing room, vigorous climbers that need lots of room to grow!
Amazing and prolific!
These beans always have my produce bucket full. The best beans I have ever grown and are my go to bean if I need large quantities! They have never failed me and the flowers are beautiful!
