PLANTING

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85 degrees F.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

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

How much does a packet plant: 25 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.

Yummy beans!

Full-flavored Kentucky Wonders are the best tasting beans ever! They are grow quickly and produce prolifically, usually at eye-level where they are easy to pick. Cool beans!

Good germination

Planted on a Friday and they were all up in 8 days. The plants are well-formed with deep green coloring - very good quality. I may update this review once the fruits are ready to be tested.
