Rattlesnake Bean (Pole)
The Rattlesnake Pole Bean is a sight to see, named for their snake-like coils around the vine! These 6-8-inch-long green and purple-streaked pods grow from stunning purple flowers on the vine. As an heirloom cultivar, it is easy to grow, has good flavor, and is very tender. The beautiful tan and dark-brown speckled seeds are also delicious in soups and stews.

*Fungicide-treated seeds protect the seedlings from diseases until they are up and growing. Do not eat treated seeds.
**Seeds are freshly packed for the growing season of the year listed. Seeds are still viable beyond pack date. Store in a cool and dry location such as the refrigerator or basement to best preserve germination rates.
Soil Preparation:Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep and rake several times to break up large clods. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots.
In the Spring, plant beans after all danger of frost has passed. In the Fall, plant beans 10 to 12 weeks before the first expected frost. For large plots, use ¼ to ½ pound of seed for each 100 feet of row of beans. Plant pole beans in hills about 3 feet apart in the row. Space the rows about 3-4 feet apart. Place a 6-8-foot stake in the center of each hill. Plant 3-4 seeds around the stake about 1 inch deep in the soil. Planting in moist soil is best for seeds to germinate and emerge quickly.
