Pole bean: Phaseolus vulgaris Kentucky Wonder Brown

Pole bean: Phaseolus v A pole bean that offers high yields and long harvests, 'Kentucky Wonder Brown' produces thick, oval-shaped, slightly curved pods with exceptional flavor. Used as a snap bean, this rust-resistant heirloom has been a garden mainstay since the mid-1800s.

Water small plants with manure tea to encourage heavier yields at maturity. Excess nitrogen will result in vigorous green growth at the expense of bean production. 0 Use floating row covers to protect young plants from pests. Handpick and destroy beetles. To discourage anthracnose, space beans well to allow air circulation. Remove and destroy virus-infected plants. Rotate crops to avoid overwintering pests and diseases in soil, and do not handle plants when foliage is wet to avoid spreading disease. 10-14 Seed Savers 5th; resists bean rust To use as a snap bean, pick when young and tender. To use dried, harvest when pods are dry and seeds inside are hard. Shell and store beans in an airtight container. Pole-bean tepees constructed of supports 8?10 feet high make great kids' hideaways. 75 Beans can be eaten at three stages of growth. Snap beans, also called green or string beans, are eaten in their pods while they're still immature. Shell, or horticultural, beans are removed from the pod and eaten when fully formed but still soft. Dry, or field, beans are left on the plant until the beans rattle in their pods. Amend soil with well-rotted manure or compost. Direct sow, 1 inch deep and 2?3 inches apart in rows 3?4 feet apart, after danger of frost has passed. Beans do not transplant well, so starting indoors is not advised. Install trellis supports, either strings, netting or tepee-style poles, at planting or soon after to avoid disturbing plant roots later. 1 Thin seedlings 6-8 inches apart. Cultivate carefully; beans are shallow-rooted plants vulnerable to root damage if nearby soil is disturbed. Help guide vines as they climb their supports, loosely securing them if necessary. Harvest often to stimulate constant flower production. fertile, well drained 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 train on bamboo tripods 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 exceptional flavor; best used as a snap bean 0 0 0 > 0 0 0 0
