HEIRLOOM. Kentucky Wonder is a brown-seeded bean noted for its exceptional flavor and its heavy crops of 9″ green pods, borne in clusters. Pods are oval, thick, gently curved, meaty and tender, and they’re stringless when young. It’s been proven tops for productivity, flavor and wide adaptability; it’s delicious fresh, frozen or dried for shell beans. Pole beans yield much longer than bush beans, right up to frost. Plant 4-6″ apart at the base of poles, trellis, a fence or our Bean Tower. A 2 oz. seed pack will plant a row of about 20 ft. or 10-16 poles.
