I’m planting some pole beans (late, I know, but I hope to get a few) and am interested in heirlooms. I’m putting in Rattlesnake and Kentucky Wonder, plus some long asparagus beans and scarlet runners to keep it interesting.
But I’m interested if any here have tried any of the “greasy” beans. For anyone who hasn’t heard of them, they are called that since they don’t have any of the little hairs on the outside that make most beans look matte, so they are shiny - hence they look greasy. They often have larger beans inside as well. I’m mostly interested in eating them raw and also cooking them as snap beans. I realize most of these will have strings. I’m in Virginia, in 7a so I think the coming heat of summer will be good for them.
So do any hear grow them and what did you think?
