phaseolus vulgaris

Pole bean.

Snap or dry beans.

The Seneca and Iroquois called this bean Cornhill bean and considered it one of their oldest varieties, the Amish grew it for generations, and sources say it was brought to America on the Mayflower in 1620. 

It is a productive climber, with short bumpy pods. The young string beans are delicious, and the dry beans are also excellent in stews and soup. 

Ideally grown with corn. 

90-100 days to maturity for dry beans. 

35 seeds per pack.

Seed starting:

For bush beans, pole beans and runner beans. 

Direct seed in your garden once all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Beans do not tolerate frost. Early June is when we plant around here. Sow seed about 1” deep. Darker coloured seeds tend to germinate better in cooler soils. 

Pole beans and runner beans need something to climb!
