Pole Bean. HEIRLOOM 1800s. To stake or not to stake - that is the question for State. By definition half-runner beans are halfway between bush and pole types. Vines grow to 3 feet and will climb but staking is not essential. Beans are relatively short - 4 inches but yields are heavy and last over a long period. Flavor is very beany and not to be missed. 2 oz packet (approx. 180 seeds)

Flavor is very beany and not to be missed. 2 oz packet (approx. 180 seeds). PLANTING: Outside- Bush type: 1” deep and 4-6” apart with soil temperatures above 60 degrees and after the last frost. 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.
