Description

Bean – Ideal Market – Pole

Phaseolus vulgaris

This early and heavy producing pole bean has a great flavor and fine texture. Hence, the name “ideal market”.  Great for a variety of uses, you can eat it fresh, freeze or can them. Introduced to the seed trade in 1914 as Black Creaseback by Van Antwerp’s Seed Store of Mobile, Alabama, it was reintroduced in 1924 by Chris Reuter Seed Company of New Orleans, Louisiana, as Reuter’s Ideal Market. In our trials on our farm, they displayed disease resistance and incredible vigor. Pole beans need a trellis to grow up and will produce beans over a long period of time instead of setting beans all at once like bush beans.

Suggested Planting Requirements: Legumes like a well-drained soil rich in organic matter and a moderate amount of nutrients. Plants should be watered lightly at the time of planting, medium at flowering and heavily throughout harvest time. Despite the warning against transplanting your beans, on our farm we almost always start our seeds in the green house and plant them out. This allows for perfect spacing on our small farm. Depending on your preference you may start indoors for short-season growing, or seed directly once soils have reached at least 48F, after the last frost.  If you plant them too soon in cold soil, your seeds will likely rot.  Soak beans for 24 hours before planting for expedited germination.

Growing Recommendations: Avoid overhead watering to prevent diseases. The more you pick, the more beans the plant will produce. Checking the plant every few days is a good practice.  Space the plants 6- 8″ to provide ample airflow and prevent fungal issues.

Harvesting & Storage: Pick regularly to extend the harvest period. When you have enough beans harvested you can let the remaining beans mature and dry them on the vine to use as shell beans. Fresh pole beans freeze well.
