Kentucky Blue Pole Bean (62 Days)

This bean combines the positive characteristics of Kentucky Wonder and Blue Lake beans in a symbiosis wherein the child is an improvement upon both parents. The vigorous vines produce an abundance of exceptionally flavorful nearly straight, stringless pods. Beans are best harvested at 7”. 

50 seeds


Phaseolus vulgaris

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures are 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Outside Sowing: After the last frost with soil temperatures above 60ºF.  Sow 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Planting in soil under 60ºF results in poor germination. 

How much does a packet plant: 12-foot single row 

Harvest: Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually every 2-3 days to prolong production.

Tips: Grow in light, well-drained soil, provide adequate, even moisture, especially at flowering time. Dry soil can result in low yields and fibrous pods. Do not over-fertilize with nitrogen 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.

Kentucky Blue was better than expected

I love doing business with a Maine company. You folks deliver a great product that I can count on for our Maine climate. Kentucky Blue pole beans have a wonderful flavor even when they reach full size. I will now use them exclusively, as I prefer them to Kentucky Wonder.

kentucky pole beans review

love shopping with Pinetree. easy to use catalogue format, items I find nowhere else, great growing instructions in the catalogue. I've grown this variety of pole bean before and they are perfect for my garden. Trying them in a raised bed this year and they sprouted in 4 days and look terrific.
