Asparagus Liana Pole Bean Seeds are organic seeds. This is one of the earliest bearing asparagus beans. Vines are 10-12'. Like most black-seeded varieties it does well in the North as well as the South. Since it is day-neutral, in the South it can be planted for early market sales, late for a fall harvest, or year-round in the greenhouse. The medium green pods are best picked at 18" (less than pencil-width). An old market favorite.

Cherokee Cornfield Pole Bean Seeds are heirloom seeds with pretty earth tone shades and markings. Yields well, especially when grown up corn stalks. The story goes that the different color varieties should not be separated out or else they will barely flower -- that much like a family, they are stronger when kept together. Traditionally eaten as a shelly bean -- boil the pods like one would with edamame, then pop the small beans out of their pods. Great for growing in the south.

Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean Seeds are organic heirloom seeds. An old fashioned favorite, "Kentucky Wonder" is what some experts say is the American name for the classic "runner bean." That tells you it'll be a strong pole or fence-growing vine with great green pods to harvest right into fall. When and Where to Plant: Select sunny location and plant when all danger of frost is past and the soil has warmed. For best results, loosen soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with rake. Firm soil over seed and keep moist. Care: Support pole beans with stout poles, trellis, string, or wire. Water by soaking soil, to reduce danger of disease.

Red Noodle Pole Beans have high-yielding burgundy beans. 16-20" long beans are borne in clusters of up to four beans each. Healthy, vigorous plants. Sweet flavor compares to Gita. Burgundy color will fade when cooked. Red seeds.
Red Noodle is a variety of cowpea (very heat tolerant). The plant itself is subtropical/tropical and most widely grown in the warmer parts of South Asia, Southeast Asia, and southern China. They are best for fresh use if picked before they reach full maturity, but mature pods can also be used like dry beans.
The plants take longer to reach maturity than bush beans, but once producing the beans are quick-growing and daily checking/harvesting is often a necessity. As long as this is done, there should be no issues with woody texture.

Metze family of Newberry, SC, offered by Parks Seed in the 1960s. Rattlesnake type. Lovely olive green pods speckled with purple. Tasty pods at any stage, even when large. The seeds remain small in the pods for a long time; it is the meat of the bean that thickens, giving you a real mouthful. Small beans are excellent eaten raw. Older, thicker beans make a great meat substitute in vegetarian meals.
