Organic Kentucky Wonder Pole Beans-
Organic Kentucky Wonder Pole Beans
Kentucky Wonder (58-72 days)

Also known as "Old Homestead" & before 1864 as "Texas Pole"

Kentucky Wonder is a classic, and popular pole bean that appeared sometime in the 1850s. Although it had many names, it has faithfully made its way into seed catalogs every year since. Talk about reliability and dependability. What makes Kentucky Wonder so special that over 84 U.S. seed companies still carry it?
  • Kentucky Wonder has 7-10" pods
  • Kentucky Wonder is a perfect green bean for fresh, cooked, frozen or canned bean
  • Kentucky Wonder is a heavy producer born in clusters over an extended season
  • Kentucky Wonder is stringless & tender when young, the green pods are rich in flavor
  • Kentucky Wonder is perfect for growing on fences or poles
  • Kentucky Wonder is highly adaptable
  • Kentucky Wonder reaches only 4'-5' for easy harvest
  • Kentucky Wonder is rust resistance

1936 James Seeds says about the "improved" cultivar...
"A selection from this popular Pole Bean, which is of better quality and more heavy bearing than ordinary strains. The flavor is sweet and delicate; the pods are a deep green. 7 inches long and nearly 1/2 inch through, solid and deeply creased, and are entirely stringless until too old for use. The pods are clustered up the poles so thickly that they overlap each other like shingles, and they can be gathered in handfuls. There is no need to plant a succession of beans if you grow this variety; just keep the plants picked clean of mature pods at all times and you will gather tender beans until heavy frost."

Steve Solmon's Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades says this about Kentucky Wonder....
"The best variety for dry-gardening is Kentucky Wonder Brown Seeded, not dubbed Old Homestead for nothing. Space 1 foot apart on rows 4 feet apart. Even when allowed to sprawl without poles or trellises you'll get a decent yield of delicious dry seed that tastes a lot like pinto beans."

Kentucky Wonder makes a great green bean to can! Harvest younger to keep them from producing any strings.
