I have been planting pole beans for over 30 years. Mostly, I have planted Kentucky Wonder. A few years back, I switched to Kentucky Blue, a hybrid of Kentucky Wonder & Blue Lake. They produce a fine bean and have much less strings. However, strings are still a lot more than most any variety of bush beans. Do any of you know of a pole bean that doesn't have the strings too bad? I experimented growing them in with the corn this year. Turned out great! Corn is definitely showing benefits of the beans nitrogen input into the soil. The beans are up to the tassels and making plenty of harvest. Unless something changes, I will continue this every year, just wanting a better pole bean.
