Description
An old fashioned favorite, "Kentucky Wonder" is what some experts say is the American name for the classic "runner bean." That tells you it'll be a strong pole or fence-growing vine with great green pods to harvest right into fall.

When and Where to Plant: Select sunny location and plant when all danger of frost is past and the soil has warmed. For best results, loosen soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with rake. Firm soil over seed and keep moist.
Care: Support pole beans with stout poles, trellis, string, or wire. Water by soaking soil, to reduce danger of disease.
Harvesting: Pick regularly when pods are 4-6"/10-15 cm., before sides bulge.

Lots of beans

      Comments about Heirloom Kentucky Wonder Bean Seeds:

      These plants are large and produce large quantities of good sized beans. I mistakenly planted them around a fairly small trellis (only ~3 ft. tall) and it's completely overrun by them. Very happy.

            I planted these beans just for fun and ended up having to freeze a ton of beans! They happen to be tasty and stringless, too.

              Comments about Heirloom Kentucky Wonder Bean Seeds:

              These seeds came as a freebie with some flower bulbs this spring. I figured, why not, and set up a bamboo trellis. The first batch I planted didn't seem to take. Two weeks went by with no sprouts, so I planted a second round. Oops! Too many beans! We're eating them as fast as we can but they just make more!
              As to the beans themselves, picked young they are very tender with a hearty, slightly sweet flavor, excellent for stir fry! As soon as they're a little bigger, take care to de-string, since they get tough. Sweet flavorful, and VERY abundant.
