    Pole and Runner Bean Planting Guide

    A great choice for any level of vegetable gardener; it only takes about 60 days for your pole or runner beans to go from seeds to table.

    Pole and runner bean plants grow bigger than their bush bean cousins, so they need more space. Pole and runner bean seeds need 3 feet (91cm) between rows and 7 to 12 inches (18 to 33cm) between plants.

    If you want your pole or runner bean plants to vine up a tepee-shaped support, dig holes in the corners of a 3 foot square (91cm), and plant 3 pole bean seeds in each. Maypoles, arches and natural supports, such as sweet corn, are often used to support the vines of pole and runner beans.

    Pole and runner bean seeds should be planted 1 inch (2.5cm) deep in clay soil and 1.5 inches (3.75cm) deep in sandy soils. Pole bean seeds need soil temperatures to reach 65F (18C) to sprout reliably. Runner beans typically grow better in colder areas than pole or bush beans.

Review By john

rattlesnake beans

Very hardy.,eight to 10 ft. Delicious beans. I also planted white half runners,tenderette and
Ky Wonder.
These withstood dry conditions much better than others and the taste was also the best.
I think you will be pleasantly surprised
how easy to grow and the excellent taste as well.

Review By BigTad Dooley

Rattlesnake pole beans

I am 58 and have gardened all my life . When my brother and i found these beans , we had never heard of them . So we got a few and planted them . what a suprise when they came up and put on !!! They are one of the most simple bean to raise other than how tall you have to make you tri-pods !! You need at least 8 to 10 feet tall poles and they will still hang down to all most the ground . the beans are very sweet and have one of the best bean flavors I have tryed . they produce for the entire summer all the way up to late september . they also put on a huge number of beans at a time on each bean plant !!! we averaged about 1/2 to a full bushel each pickeing . we only had two tri-pods with 3 plants a leg !!! I would say to anyone that they are the easyest to grow and best tasteing bean out there !!!
