Kentucky Wonder Pole Beans produce some of the most delicious green beans you will ever taste. Tall, hardy 5-7′ vines produce clusters of large numbers of 7-10″ bean pods, bright green, flavorful, and full of plump brown or white seeds. Bears freely, when picked frequently, prolific vines will keep producing right up until the first fall frosts. Formerly known as the Texas Pole Bean, given its present name by seedsman James J.H. Gregory in 1877. The perfect green bean for fresh, cooked, frozen or canned beans. Rust resistant.

Planting Instructions for Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean Seeds

Sow Heirloom / Open Pollinated beans 1-2″ deep, 2-6″ apart, in rows 18-36″ apart, in full sun after danger of frost. Soaking seeds in water 1-2 hours before planting speeds germination. Germination occurs in 4-16 days in soil 60-85°F. Provide support for heirloom pole bean varieties. For snap beans, harvest when beans are 3-6″ long. For dry beans, leave pods on plants until pods are dry, brown, and crisp, and beans are hard and rattle in pod, if more drying is needed when danger of frost has arrived, pick pods or pull entire plant and hang upside down to dry further.

    My M-I-L has been searching for a pole bean that tastes like what her mother used to plant. Since she grew up in eastern Tennessee, and this is a Kentucky variety, I’m hoping that this is the bean that she remembers and misses. I’m looking forward to growing this in 2024.

    All the ones I planted sprouted quickly into strong, healthy seedlings. They were a foot tall one week from planting!
