HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Plant Kentucky Wonder pole bean seeds after the last frost, since pole beans are very sensitive to cold. Place the seeds 2" deep and 10" apart, allowing them to grow on a trellis or other vertical support as soon as they emerge from the soil. If using a teepee structure, plant them in groups of 5-6 plants per pole. Germination usually takes place in 14-20 days. For companion planting benefits, plant Kentucky Wonder pole beans with corn; this provides natural support for both the vines and the corn stalks.

Growing: Keep the soil moist to ensure healthy plants and a productive crop, taking care not to disturb the blossoms as they form. Mulch helps conserve moisture, control weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

Harvesting: Expect your first beans about ten weeks after germination. Daily harvesting improves production; for best flavor and tenderness, pick the beans when they are no larger than a pencil in thickness. Serve or preserve the same day you harvested them for the freshest taste.

Seed Saving: Near the end of the growing season, allow the beans to dry completely on the vine; the pods will be light brown, and the seeds will rattle inside. Remove the seeds from the pods. After the seeds are completely dry, store Kentucky Wonder garden bean seeds in a cool, dry place for up to a year.

DESCRIPTION

This heirloom variety of Kentucky Wonder garden beans just keeps those mouth watering beans coming all season long! Preferred for its distinctive flavor, the pods of this bean are flat, meaty, and slightly stringy. With supports, these plants will grow up rather than out, reaching 5 to 8 feet in height. It makes an excellent freezing, canning, or fresh eating variety!
First appearing in the late 1800s, Kentucky Wonder Pole bean seeds are descended from an old variety of pole bean called Texas Pole. When first introduced, Kentucky Wonder had the name of Old Homestead. In 1877, James J. H. Gregory & Sons made it available in their catalog. It immediately became widely popular for its flat, stringless pods that could be eaten fresh or dried for soup beans.
