About- This purple pole bean is a vigorous climber that produces 7-8” pods. Pods are a deep purple on the outside, with a bright green interior and white seeds. When cooked, pods turn green and are incredibly tender with a delightful flavor.
When and Where to Plant- Select a sunny location and plant when the soil temperature is above 60 degrees and up to 3 months before the first frost. Grow pole beans on trellis poles or on a mesh fence to allow them to climb. Plant 2 seeds per pole, with 3” between seeds.
Care & Harvest- Grows best in soil with a pH between 6 and 7, and light fertilization. Do not over-fertilize as this will cause an overgrowth of foliage and not allow pods to form. Harvest when the pods are 7” to 8” long to encourage new pod growth. Hold the stem with one hand and pick with the other hand to avoid tearing the plant.
