This is the classic green-podded pole bean, gardeners' choice for generations! The reason is simple: mouth-watering flavor that just won't quit -- though the heavy yields and great adaptability to adverse conditions don't hurt, either! This season, grow the classic pole bean and find out why it's still the most popular, many decades after its introduction!

Kentucky Wonder sets pods that are 9 inches long and bulging with succulent brown seeds--that meaty, extra "beany" taste that can only come from the home garden! The pods are slightly curved, and if you pick them young enough, they will be stringless.

You can use Kentucky Wonder beans for fresh eating, for canning and freezing, and for drying as shell beans. Remarkably adaptable, they keep their flavor and texture over a long period, so even if your harvest is delayed, you can be sure of great eating.

The plants are very widely adapted, producing heavily in a range of climates and conditions. They continue to set new beans all season long, bringing you bushel baskets full over the course of many weeks!

Many gardeners prefer pole beans for their distinctive "beany" flavor. Because they use vertical space, they free up the horizontal rows in the vegetable garden for other varieties. They're easier than bush beans to harvest, as well. You just can't go wrong with Kentucky Wonder!

Direct-sow the seeds after all danger of frost, and for best harvest, keep sowing at 3-week intervals until late spring. You can also sow in late summer and early fall (up to about a month before the first frost) for a fall harvest. Support the 5- to 8-foot vines on a trellis, tower, or poles spaced 3 feet apart. And this season, consider growing a Three Sisters companion planting of corn, beans, and squash!

Flavorful long beans, so easy to grow. Didn't have any pest issues at all. Give them plenty of room to climb though. I raised on 5 ft tomato cages and it wasn't nearly tall enough so they flopped over. No worries though because they produced a pound every 2 days for the first week or so, they slowed down for a couple weeks and then put out another bumper crop. I've let them go to seed now and am harvesting a pound or so of dry beans.

Massive producer

These taste awesome cooked, and the first harvest was 320 beans. We got over a hundred a week later. From one pack of seeds. Amazing value.

awesome harvests!

the bean is kind of hard to care for but its well worth it. my mum grew it last year and about twelve plots of it gave us enough beans in one harvest to eat five meals! its well worth it for such a good yield. the only con is that the plant tends to have problems with pests that chew holes and drying.
