Green Pole type grown from seed saved for about 5 years. Growing very well, slowly adapting to the garden over the years. Easily reached the top of the poles 1st this year!
I messed up with my pole beans this year. I was looking for taller teepee branches & got them in very late. They never made up the time. Usually I have mountains to freeze. Did freeze some, but nowhere near the volume that I usually get & was unable to save this years seed – froze before it dried ): Still have lots of 2010 seed to use next year.
