Product Overview

Phaseolus vulgaris

There s a reason this old bean is still a favorite! You ll enjoy the excellent flavor and tender pods of this heavy producer.

You can't lose with this 1800s heirloom. 'Kentucky Wonder' (brown seeded) has wonderful, if not unsurpassed flavor. It out-produces most other pole beans with heavy crops of 9" long, gently curved, oval pods. A multi-use bean: drying, shelling and green. Stringless when young. Excellent for freezing. Good production even in hot climates. Disease resistant.

Variety Info

7"–9" long, ½" wide silvery-green pods; stringless when young, brown seeds. Pre-Civil War variety known then under different names, released as 'Kentucky Wonder' in 1877 by J. H. Gregory & Sons seed company. Resistant to bean common mosaic virus.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended; bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65?F, ideally 70??85?F. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches, temperatures consistently above 90?F will prevent beans from forming.
