These warm weather beans did well. I could not tell the difference in growth, appearance, harvesting, taste, cooking, or freezing.
Pole beans have to be staked. We prefer pole beans because we won't have to bend down picking the beans; however, we do have to do the staking.
Because we use staked pole beans, we sow the beans in a designated, stationary, place and we also use heavy duty PVC poles and providing strings for the beans to climb. When the beans are fully grown, they make a nice hedge.
It is also recommended that a gardener rotate the crop, but we have made an exception to the beans.
The Sieva and the Mezcla beans, respectively, have a delightful hint of green. The Sieva pole beans are our preference.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
Happy growing season!
