Growing Pole Beans

our pole beans only took five days to come up. Below are a couple of pictures of their progress.

This page provides information for the Home Gardener for Growing Pole Beans. We will be growing the Fortex. I have had pole beans as tall as ten feet. I had to get a ladder to get to them. The reason why the plants were so tall is I over did it with the fertilizer.

If plants are given too much fertilizer, mainly nitrogen then the plant will grow and grow but it will not put out any produce.

To fix this just cut back on the nitrogen.

Grow pole beans on trellises or large mesh fencing, 4-pole tepees, or single poles. Sow seeds 1" deep, spaced 3" apart in rows 4' apart after soil temperature exceeds 60°F. If using poles, plant 7 seeds at the base of each pole.

CULTURE: PLANTING: Grow pole beans on trellises or large mesh fencing, 4-pole tepees, or single poles. Sow seeds 1" deep, spaced 3" apart in rows 4' apart after soil temperature exceeds 60 degrees. If using poles, plant 7 seeds at the base of each pole.

Place fence posts 8-10' apart to support the growing pole beans, and support a 9-gauge galvanized wire at the top. With twine, lash trellis to the wire (or zigzag our natural sisal trellis twine between the top wire and a bottom twine). Anchor bottom of trellis with stakes or hoops of 9-gauge wire.

DISEASES: Plow under or remove and compost bean straw in the fall to hasten destruction of any disease organisms. Practice crop rotation of at least three years.

INSECT PESTS: Mexican bean beetles can be controlled with rotenone or pyrethrin.

Harvest regularly to encourage new pod set.

STORAGE: Store at 40°F and 90% humidity for 7-10 days. They can also be frozen or canned.

The one bright spot we did have for Growing Pole Beans in the Fall was growing the Red Noodle which is yard long pole bean. It had beautiful dark burgundy pods. We had beans as long as 16" in clusters of up to four. The beans had a sweet, tender flavor.

But just as they started producing really good we had a freeze and they died instantly. I had a heater in the greenhouse for them but I guess it was not enough.

Well our pole beans only took five days to come up. Below are a couple of pictures of their progress.

I am using some lattice panels I had to let them grow on.

In the pictures below are the pole beans. They are growing strong and tall. They are also putting out a lot of beans as see in the last picture. The beans are green but the light from the camera makes them look yellow.

I believe the inoculant we added has helped our Pole Beans.
