Pole Bean. It is finally here!! We have had many of you asking us to offer this variety in our catalog and we now know why, it is an extraordinary French filet bean. Growing to over 10 inches long the delicious round pods have a pronounced nutty bean flavor that can be harvested at any size, small and slender or large and plump. The yields are impressive and long lasting, keeping you picking to the end of the season. We have a feeling these packets are going to fly off the shelf this year so order early. And to all those customers who suggested we carry this bean, Thank you!

Planting under 60 degrees results in poor germination. Pole type: Plant 1” deep and 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Drying type: 1” deep and 5-6” apart. Leave beans on the plant until the leaves are falling and pods are dry and withered Harvest- Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually to prolong production. Tips- Water well during hot dry period and do not over fertilize which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants. Plant seeds every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest throughout the summer.

Tasty! Review by cholco
I tried growing these a couple summers ago. I did not have much success (it was my first year gardening, what can I say...) but the ones that did manage to survive my caretaking were the most delicious green beans. They never made it to the kitchen, but they were very nice to snack on raw right from the vine! Going to try again this spring! (Posted on 1/10/14)
