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.
Planting- Plant in spring when the soil temperature is above 60and up until 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.
