Gold Marie Pole Bean (Organic, 75 Days)

Flattened, radiant yellow romano type pods are crisp and fleshy in texture. Our Ikarus sunflowers, growing underneath a teepee style trellis, provided great support for this pleasing variety. Best harvested at 6 inches.Said to be a selection from an old Italian heirloom.  

50 seeds 

 

PLANTING

Phaseolus vulgaris

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures are 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Outside Sowing: After 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.

    A nice addition to our bean harvest

    This was our first experience with Gold Marie. The bright yellow beans were easy to find and tasty. Even the "tougher" ones that I'd let go too far were edible. Unfortunately, due to a downturn in weather after planting, I thought all of my seeds had rotted. But after slit-replanting, with other seed, the result showed that some of the Gold Marie seeds withstood the 2 weeks of cold rain and germinated anyway! I was thrilled. The only downside to Gold Marie was that they didn't continuously produce like Kentucky Wonders and other pole beans. They had 2 distinct flushes of production instead - but so unique, it was worth it. I hope to get more next spring and plant with germination success. It sure would be nice to have a whole row of these rather than 3 plants!

    my favorite pole bean varieties

    I plant 16ft of pole beans on 7ft tall hog panels every year, and I like a variety, both for flavor, texture, and to cover bases for seasonal growing variances. After trying many varieties, the ones that I go back to every year are: Rattlesnake, Fortex, Carminat, Red Noodle, Yard Long, and Goldmarie. If I had to limit myself to one, I would pick the Rattlesnake, at least for our Sacramento climate. It's always the first and last to harvest, heavy crops, tastes great, is more forgiving in picking size, and easier to pick due to the purple mottled color, which stands out better among the leaves. Goldmarie adds some texture and color to a meal. They do have a tendency to curl up tight after a few hot days, but still are great eating. Easy to pick due to color and sparse foliage.
