Try   Kentucky Wonder as a substitute for McCaslan


Phaseolus vulgaris

Heirloom 1920’s

Listed in the 1930 DM Ferry catalog as, “a white seeded pole bean of recent introduction”. A vigorous and productive variety. Pods are about 8” in length, slightly flattened, fleshy, and delicious. Stringless and great dried.

75 seeds



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: 15 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.
