Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean

Grandma's Favorite Fresh Bean

  • Long-time favorite pole bean
  • 8-9 in. pods
  • No strings if harvested before seeds mature
  • A good shelling bean
  • Plants require support or trellis
One of the most popular pole beans on the market, Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean is vigorous, rust resistant and adaptable to many parts of the country. This old-fashioned favorite produces plenty of 8-9 in., smooth, green pods. Harvest before they mature and enjoy stringless, richly and distinctively flavored pods. Or, let the pods mature and harvest them for shell beans. A good bean for eating fresh, canning and freezing. If picked regularly, the plants will produce heavy yields until frost. Because it climbs, Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean is a space saver in the garden. Requires a support or trellis. 67 DAYS.
