Pole Dry Bean, Poletschka (Organic)

Phaseolus vulgaris. Black. 90 days.

Produces little round beans that are a very pretty, shiny black. Early and prolific in our Pacific Northwest climate. Lives up to the general reputation of pole bean flavor being excellent, with more depth of flavor when compared to bush type black beans. Best as a dry bean, but also can be used as a shelling or snap bean when young. Eastern Europe holds a vast array of pole bean  diversity and this is a good example of that heritage. We sourced it from the Heritage Seed Library in England, who received it as a family heirloom from Irma Jacyna, from the western Ukrainian village of Kostilinyky.

Geographical Origin

Direct sow 1″ deep May through early June in rows that are 1′ apart. Thin seedlings to 3-6″spacing. Protect early sowings from frost. Requires trellising; try T-posts and bailing twine or plant a few weeks after corn or sunflowers for a natural trellis. Shell seeds from fully dry pods by hand or by dancing on them. Winnow to clean. Test for dryness with a hammer – dry beans shatter.

Seed Saving

Some cross-pollination may occur, but beans mostly self-pollinate.
