Northeaster Pole Bean (Organic 56 Days)

Our earliest pole bean. The 7-8 inch flattened, stringless pods stay tender between pickings. Its ability to mature quickly makes it possible for second plantings. The name of this variety might chill those of us who live in the northeast but this nor’ easter will give you shovels of beans, not snow!

Northeaster Pole Bean (Organic 56 Days)



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.

Northeaster pole bean early and tasty

Planted June 21, all seeds germinated, began picking tasty beans from vigorously growing vines by the end of July. Best flavor of 3 pole beans I grew. Definitely these beans are on my list for next year. Some bug snacking on lower leaves, but few real pest problems. We have had a very dry summer season following a very wet spring, still going strong.

North Eastern Pole Beans

You are a great company to work with & I appreciate your concern for self evaluation to make yourself even better. I have ordered these beans in previous years & they have produced great harvests. This year had been a test fir most of my garden & they have struggled through the continual rain. Thank you for asking for my input.

northeaster pole bean

Northeaster beans were best beans we ever had. They were still tender even after they exceeded their optimal size.

I call these Goliath beans!

These beans are amazing! I was initially worried they wouldn't be good producers. The vines were leggy - all stem and and few nodes. They were good climbers, though. Now that they've started producing, I'm so impressed! I recommend having the self-control to let them get to "full" size. I measured one at 9" long, 3/4" wide, and it still wasn't tough, stringy, or seedy. They have good enough flavor - not as full as a Kentucky Wonder, but not the "canned" taste of 1/2 runners or other "round" beans or bush beans. The biggest bonus is that the Japanese beetles don't seem to like them! I love pole beans for the economy of space, the Kentucky Wonder being a favorite for the flavor, but the Japanese beetles just won't leave them alone! This bean is a nice replacement for a flat, green pole variety.
