What are the pros? Produces well in Southern heat
What are the cons? None
I have grown three different varieties of pole beans in the same spot these past three years. I made a 6 pole tepee with 9 ft bamboo poles in a semi-shaded spot behind the house. I have planted Kentucky Wonder, Blue Lake, and Rattlesnake. Rattlesnake was by far the most prolific and easiest to grow. Kentucky Wonder was okay, but gets stringy and beany if you let it stay on the vine too long, it produced at the beginning and the end of the season. Blue Lake is a fine stringless variety but does poorly in the heat, I had no production from it until September. Rattlesnake takes the heat, produces consistently throughout the season, and has a larger harvesting window. This is now my go to pole bean!

What are the pros? Sets bean really early
What are the cons? Took longer to germinate than
Even though these beans got off to a slower start they have beans on them already where my Kentucky Wonder are faster and taller but no beans yet, just lots of flowers. The flowers are gorgeous!

What are the pros? Sweet
What are the cons? Deer eating my beans
Rattlesnake beans are easy to grow, sweet in flavor when served fresh from the garden, and I planted as late as Mid-July and had beans by September 1 if you keep them watered.
Harvest daily, or every other day, to extend the harvest season and to assure that the beans to not get tough and stringy. The flowers are purplish white, and attractive.Occasionally you will get a deep purple bean. The bi-color bean keeps your interest keen.

What are the pros? Prolific and beautiful
What are the cons? Nothing
We had a pretty hot summer, averaging 107 F degrees (I'm in the DFW area of Texas). The plants 'survived' but didn't produce during this period. As soon as it cooled down to 98 F or less the plants exploded with beans. The plant itself is very pretty with beautiful pink and purple blooms. The beans do have a slightly nutty flavor. They get big very fast so you need to check your plant every day. They taste best fresh when young and tender, but steamed once they get bigger and plump. Very easy to grow. I had no pest issues with this plant.
