Brought to us by a dear friend and fellow seed fanatic, these purple pole beans came all the way from Poland! We love the flavor! Crisp and sweet! Unlike most pole beans, these can be enjoyed even after they grow past their typical harvest size. They are beautiful, heavy producing beans. They can be used fresh, shelled, and dried. On our farm, we pick as much as we can for fresh use, then allow the pods to swell with seeds and save the seeds for dry soup beans. They are tasty and beautiful!
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 greenhouse 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.
