Pole, 65 days. This pole bean is easy to grow and produces lots of green pods that have purple streaks. Good flavor and very tender; the speckled seeds are popular in soup. This variety is great for hot, humid areas.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, eager vines

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I interplanted this bean with Tennessee Red Cob corn. That was a good combination. The eager vines quickly grew up on the tall stalks of corn. No bending to pick ! (That's great for us older gardeners. ) Produced large numbers of large pods. Picked young they were quite tasty. I let a large number dry for seed for next year. I will give the corn a head start next year, but this is a great pole bean and is a good choice for interplanting.

Still my favorite bean

What are the pros? Everything

What are the cons? Spotty germination

Review:

Last year I didn't manage to get any of these established. This year, it took several tries to get my beans going because our spring and early summer weather was so wet. Eventually I got some Kentucky Wonder, Turkey Craw, cut short speckled greasy beans and Rattlesnake beans growing. Many of the rattlesnake beans I planted didn't germinate at all. Nearly all of the other beans I planted did germinate. Even though a fraction of the rattlesnake beans germinated, they were only outproduced by the greasy beans. I liked the greasy beans, but the insects seemed to prefer them too and they had strings that had to be removed. The Turkey Craw was good as a green bean and so was the Kentucky Wonder. For productivity and taste, Rattlesnake is still my favorite. They don't develop strings until they get quite large and they remain tender and good to eat at almost any stage. I like to try new beans each year, but always plant Rattlesnake. Hope to try them as dry beans soon.

Review:

Great pole bean with easy to see pods. Fun to grow. I have to shade them when temps are 100*F or hotter. Good for blanching and freezing with Food Saver for winter eating.

What are the pros? Taste, appearance

What are the cons? none

Review:

This bean is very tender and grew well in spite of a late and rocky start (due to the gardener - me). Prolific and really yummy. Pretty too. I'll continue to grow these - excellent flavor.

Review:

Several years ago, I planted some Rattlesnake beans in two earthboxes with makeshift trellises. I was blown away by the growth, production and flavor of these beans. I didn't realize how long the vines get when I planted them, so mine climbed the supports quickly and over them. The trellises wound up being very thick with bean vines that produced steadily. The problem I had in the earthboxes is that the vines were so thick that wind would knock the containers over. Mine did stop producing for a few weeks during the extreme heat, but started right up again when the temperatures dropped a little. They were still pumping out beans when the first freeze did them in. The streaks on the beans make them a little easier to spot for picking. We loved the taste of these beans and some of the younger beans were eaten raw in salads. I'm planning to grow these again next year, but in the ground and let some mature for dry beans.
