I had great success with Kentucky Wonder. I planted way too much and they were tremendously prolific.

pole beans in the high desert Empty Pole Bean problem

Post  Palmdale Steve 9/25/2011, 7:18 pm

Thank you CHOPPER for the reply but I am in a dryer semi-arid area than you I think. I will try them in the spring though. I had great vine growth this year but few beans.I have a lot of rosemary and two PALOS VERDE trees that really attract the bees so I do not think that pollination was a problem. It was a mild spring this year and did not get real warm until MEMORIAL DAY.

I second Rattlesnake. I've planted them here in the Dallas area for 3 years. They have always produced for me. This year has been a challenge for Texas with our drought and record temps. In the past they produce for me a little in spring, go dormant, and then come on strong in the fall. I just water/love them through the hot summer and then they reward me in abundance in the fall. This year is no exception. They are now starting to reward me. Hope this helps!

It is not too late to plant them this month - last month to plant beans around here, although you may be able o stretch it where you are. I think this would be a good time.

pole beans in the high desert Empty Question

Post  CharlesB 1/11/2012, 7:15 am

In SFG growing rattlesnake, what was your spacing of the plants? I am assuming you grew them up a trellis, how tall?

pole beans in the high desert Empty RE:Questions-Rattlesnake Pole Beans

Post  janefss2002 1/11/2012, 8:50 pm

Hi Charles,
I've grown Rattlesnakes for 2 years now. I plant mine 8 per square.

I have planted them in a square with a 7 foot pole in the middle and string staked out to the four corners. I then planted 2 per stake for the 8 per square. They grew nicely up the strings and hung over the top!

This year I planted them 8 per square next to a net trellis like this:
back of square and trellis
O O O O
O O O O (staggered, can't quite make it come out typing this)
These are planted in the back 4th or 3rd of the square. I can then use the front of the square for short plants like radishes or onions etc.
My trellis was part of a 7 foot arbor. They grew up the trellis and across the top of the arbor. Shocked Beans hanging down through the arbor netting were easy to pick.

I really liked the Rattlesnakes, not as hard to pick as the 12 foot tall Kentucky Wonders.

Thanks Jane! This is exactly what I was looking for. I did not know one could grow that many that close together. I'll give it a shot this year. Is your trellis pretty much covered with foliage this way?

Also nice to know the Kentucky's get taller. I'll have to see how high I would be able to reach with my ladder Laughing.
