This pole bean, aka “Old Homestead,” is a treasured heirloom dating from about 1864. A delicious and prolific green bean with a brown seed and a smooth stringless 7" pod, it has stood the test of time. As a pole bean it does require staking or trellising. Nitrogen fixing legume. Benefits from bacterial inoculant (included).
Seed outdoors after last frost and soil temp is at least 60℉ as plants don’t like cold damp soil. Plant 1" deep, 1" apart, thin to 2-4” apart when 4” tall.
trellising saves valuable garden space and allows pole beans to survive mild frosts
while delicious raw, these beans are divine when steamed
plants like good supply of phosphorus and potassium
enhance nitrogen-fixing capacity of legume by mixing seeds in inoculant powder (included)
