Beans - Organic Kentucky Wonder
The Kentucky Wonder (phaseolus vulgaris) or Old Homestead Pole Snap Bean has been popular since its introduction before 1864, undergoing changes along the way. The Kentucky Wonder Bean is resistant to bean rust. String-less and tender when small. These distinctly flavored, tender beans are best when pods are 6 inches long. Eat fresh or keep longer by canning, freezing, or drying out to use later in soups, stews, and other meals.
Growing Info: 66 days to mature after germination. Along a trellis about 6 feet tall, sow a seed every 4 inches when the soil is warm. Soaking seeds overnight before planting will speed germination. Thin to one plant every 8 inches when plants have 4 leaves. Pick when pods are nearly mature, but beans are not fully developed and pods are still crisp.
Health Benefits: Kentucky Wonder Snap Beans are low in calories and a good source of fiber and calcium, phosphorus and vitamins A & C.
