Kentucky Blue Pole Bean Seeds
The ‘Kentucky Blue’ pole bean is a winner of the All-America Selections, and has all the best traits from both Blue Lake and Kentucky Wonder varieties. Unbeatable flavor, heavy crops of 9″ long, gently curved, oval pods. A multi-use bean: drying, shelling, cooked, canned, or eaten fresh and green. This variety grows in an upright vine fashion, and therefore needs support like a pole or a trellis.

Name: Pole Beans ‘Kentucky Blue’
Botanical Name: Phaseolus vulgaris ‘Kentucky Blue’
Days to Maturity: 58
When to sow outside: 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperature is 70º‒85ºF.
Harvesting: Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod “snaps” or breaks in half cleanly. This is when seeds have just begun to form and the pods are several inches long (depending on the variety). Hold stem with one hand and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches, which will continue to produce. Harvesting early and often will stimulate flower production for more beans.
