Here is the Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean, Phaseolus vulgaris. This pole bean variety dates back to the 1850's and was originally named the Old Homestead Bean. This pole bean is excellent as a home garden variety and is beautiful in a salad and eaten fresh. We found this variety to be a highly productive type with bean pods about 6 inches long with a crisp texture great for eating fresh. One plant can produce hundreds of been pods and can be dried out for winter storage. Vines can grow to 30 feet long in the right conditions. Another great variety for drying and long term storage. Open pollinated 75 days.
