our favorite pole bean. handles dry weather well.
This is our third season with this bean. This bean is easy to grow and two packs of seeds produced over 40 quarts for us this year.
This year I'm going back to my old reliable rattlesnake pole beans. They are very productive and taste great and generate great conversation! Last year I tried another pole bean and was very disappointed. It had all vines and no beans.
I have grown rattlesnake beans for 5 years now and they have become one of our garden staples. They taste great and produce wonderfully in our North Carolina garden. I have grown them both in the summer and planted in August for a fall crop. They will produce abundantly until the frost kills them. Dry summers slow down but don't halt production and they pick up again when the heat lets up. They are a very pretty bean with their purple stripes. If you try them you will like them!
Love this bean. It just needs some water and needs to be picked and it will keep producing all summer long here in ho humid Georgia.The beans taste so good that my children go out to the garden just to eat them.
