Pole. 65 days. This homesteaders’ heirloom was first mentioned in The Country Gentleman magazine in 1864 under the name of Texas Pole. It was introduced as Kentucky Wonder by James J.H. Gregory & Sons in 1877 and has been popular ever since. The 6-8" green pods are tender when cooked and have great flavor. In 1896 Peter Henderson & Co. said, “This we regard as far ahead of any other green Pole Bean.”
