Now I have heard of a snake in the grass, but not a rattle snake on a pole bean! Okay so really it’s the dried beans that look like rattlesnakes. The beans are covered with purple stripes that stand out in your garden.
It’s not only a fun bean to grow it but it likes the heat so you can keep growing it all summer. It can grow to 10 feet with 7 inch pods so give it some room. If you grow it on a teepee trellis you can have 3 plants together. Beans like their toes (roots) to be warm so don’t plant them too early. Wait a few weeks after the last frost and in 65 days you’ll have” beans, beans the musical fruit!”
