Kentucky Blue Pole Bean (62 days)

Germ 4-10 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”. 150 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.
