Pole Beans 'Poltschka X'

These are a naturally occurring cross between my ‘Poltschka’ pole beans and an unknown variety (possibly Cherokee Cornfield). Two pods produced small white beans (as opposed to black), the same size as the original Poltschka.

Being a naturally inquisitive person, I had to plant the only seeds that became crossed, so we’ll see what I get this year.

Believe it or not, I haven’t had a chance to probably grow them out yet to see! I’ll be doing so this year and will log it here on the site :).
