Kentucky Wonder

Phaseolus vulgaris

HEIRLOOM Long, fleshy and stringless pole bean. Early maturing, productive and very reliable. Enjoyed fresh, canned, dried, and frozen.

Pole beans are a space saving wonder for the compact garden. The long vines take advantage of vertical space and have a continual harvest throughout the growing season so they have higher yields per square foot than bush beans. For many people, the flavor is beyond compare as well.
