You guys have done a great job educating me on the
direct-sow issue of pole beans. No seedling plants for me in warm SoCal. haha. Now, the question is: which pole bean variety is the best tasting and stringless??? The seed companies make them all sound great.

Fortex always wins this poll - hands down.:) Linked one of them below but there are several others if interested.

RE: Pole Beans....Part 2

This is one of those rare occasions when I disagree strongly with Dave,dig dirt (not about the poll results but about best pole bean). I have found Emerite to be superior in every category and have grown both for more years than I like to remember. Please consider that this judgement and hallowed pronouncement is based on gardening in a very small plot, at the end of a very long bay in south coast Ma with a rather unique and different temperatue pattern from other areas in the same horticultural zone. Also, I like the taste of Emerite. My advice? Try them both, and a few others, and decide what is best for your garden.
Have fun.
