Italian Pole Snap Bean
Beloved heirloom white-seeded, Romano-type bean, almost unknown in the marketplace.
It bears many exceptionally sweet and tender 7-8” flat, meaty pods. Vines grow to 8-10’ and require trellising. Excellent way to maximize yields in a limited space.
60-70 days to fresh snap stage then continues on to produce the best tasting small white beans!

How to grow: Plant as early as the soil can be worked, or in fall in mild-winter climates. Sow 4" apart and ½" deep. Don't let soil dry out. Compost, bone meal, or other nutrients can be added at planting time for a good start. For faster sprouting and highest yield, soak seeds before planting & use garden combo inoculant. Vines to 10 feet will need trellises or strings to climb. Keep peas picked so more will form.
