(Phaseolus vulgaris) The Kentucky Wonder is an outstanding 1800s heirloom. It's the perfect multipurpose green bean as it works great fresh, cooked, frozen, canned, or even dried.

This superb variety consistently out-produces other pole beans and easily withstands hotter climates.

Expect heavy production of rich and flavorful 6"-9" oval pods. Stringless and tender when harvested young. Harvest often to ensure continued production.

Brown seeded, rust resistant.

Planting Instructions:
Direct seed in warm soil of 65° or higher. In spring, sow seeds in fertile, well-worked soil starting on or after your last frost date. Grows best in full sun with well watered soil. Take care, however, not to overwater as bean disease will thrive in wet conditions. Harvest regularly to ensure continued production.

Additional Tips:
​Extend your harvest of bush snap beans with additional plantings about three weeks apart.

Try growing more beans in less space with pole varieties, which produce more per square foot by making good use of vertical growing space. Use bamboo poles, tripod structures, or even fencing to support the beans.

Cut back on fertilizer. Beans benefit from fertile soil with a slightly acid pH (between 6.0 and 6.5), but once they are up and growing, they will create most of the nitrogen they need. Inoculating seeds with nitrogen-fixing bacteria before planting can help kick-start this process.

Companion Plants:
Plant with eggplant, peas, strawberries, cucumber, or corn.
Hindered by onions.
