Short Description

Full Description

HEIRLOOM. Kentucky Wonder is a brown-seeded bean noted for its exceptional flavor and its heavy crops of 9" green pods, borne in clusters. Pods are oval, thick, gently curved, meaty and tender, and they're stringless when young. It's been proven tops for productivity, flavor and wide adaptability; it's delicious fresh, frozen or dried for shell beans. Pole beans yield much longer than bush beans, right up to frost. Plant 4-6" apart at the base of poles, trellis, a fence or our Bean Tower. A 2 oz. seed pack will plant a row of about 20 ft. or 10-16 poles. Certified Organic Seed.

  • Bean, Kentucky Wonder Organic is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good! Super yield! These are superb producers. I have found myself picking handfuls every few days off of 8 plants. If you pick them you will have a nonstop supply. It's hard to believe how fast they grow once they bloom. As for taste and consistency - as the description said - they are stringless, when young. The moment they get a larger size they have a very distinct string. Pick when young, likely even before you would think you should. The beans when small are very tender and not "waxy" but - they have to be picked young. Overall I'd say they are best if you are likely canning. I like to steam my beans and I find overall they are a bit waxy when steaming. Planted some other types of pole and bush beans a month later and will have reviews for them when they come in. Overall I do think this is a bean to have. The key is to pick young.
