The pretty patterned pods of Rattlesnake pole beans make delicious fresh snap beans, or let the seeds mature and dry in the pods, then shell them for a nutty-tasting and nutritious dried bean dishes. Distinctive purple pole beans are renowned for flavor and reliability, offering long, tender, crunchy pods whose rich color stands out from the vines so they are fun and easy to harvest.

Planting & Care

Planting:In Spring, once the weather is warm and settled and night temperatures stay securely above 55°F, plant seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Erect strong stakes, tripod poles, or trellis at planting time to support vines. Plant seeds 1" deep and 4" apart along a trellis, or if planting around tripods or stakes, plant 4 - 6 seeds 4" from each pole, thinning seedlings to 3 best plants.

Growing:Beans are easy to grow, but wait until spring weather is warm both night and day to plant them because cold conditions prevent good germination. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away; new seedlings will catch up quickly. Birds are often attracted to young bean seedlings, so watch carefully and protect with netting or floating row covers if necessary. Avoid cultivating plants or picking pods when plants are wet.

Harvest & Use:Both these heirloom pole varieties are heavy bearers, so harvest pods often. The more you pick, the more the plants will produce. Harvest for snap beans when pods are well filled out, but bean seeds have not swelled in the pods. Cook just until tender to enjoy best flavor and texture. For dried beans, let some of the Rattlesnake bean pods fully mature and dry on the plants if you want to shell out the pretty mottled beans inside to enjoy in dried bean recipes and chili.
