Kentucky Blue Pole Bean is a hybrid pole bean that combines many of the great traits from the Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean and Blue Lake bean. This variety is extremely productive and beans have a sweeter flavor than traditional pole bean varieties. Vining plants grow to 6-8' tall and require trellising. Our Hortonova Trellis Netting works great for supporting pole beans. Bean pods are round, straight and best picked at about 6-7" long. Kentucky Blue Pole Bean is an early variety and starts producing beans usually 1-2 weeks before other varieties. An All-America Selection, this pole bean performs great when grown in spring and in fall.

Beans should be planted in spring after the last frost has occurred. Beans will germinate best once soil temps have reached 65 F or higher. Optimal germination temperature is around 77 F. Seeds can require 8 to 16 days to germinate, depending on the soil temperature. For continual production, succession plant every couple of weeks throughout the spring and early summer. Plants will drop blooms or cease production in the heat of summer. Subsequent succession plantings may be made in late summer/fall, as long as enough time is permitted before the first frost date.

Direct seeding is recommended. We suggest using a #6 plate on the Hoss Garden Seeder and modifying the hole size (if necessary) to fit the seed size. Beans should be planted relatively thick along the row and thinned to the desired spacing. To maximize garden space, consider using a double-row spacing. For double-row spacing, rows may be planted as close as 6″ apart with 3′ spacing between double rows. For single row spacing, 2′ to 3′ spacing is recommended.

Tasty Bean

Tried this bean 2023 and was pleased. It was tasty and seemed to take off later in the season. Produced until frost.

Did not germinate for me

Not sure what happened but I could not get any of an entire 60 foot row to germinate. Planted in the same place right after a strong cucumber and eggplant yield. I must have done something wrong.

Hello Jim, we are sorry to hear this. Contact us at custserv@hosstools.com about your issue and we can help!

Planted these next to Rattlesnake variety and these were destroyed by insects. Decent producer but the Rattlesnake pole bean has performed better for me.
