Pole Snap Bean, Gold Nectar (Organic)

Phaseolus vulgaris. Semi-flat Yellow Pods. 70 days.

Yellow/wax bean yields lots of crunchy beans with excellent sweet and beany flavor. The 9″ long straight pods are ½” wide with a semi-flat shape. Anne Berblinger of Gales Meadow Farm in Forest Grove, Oregon, says about Gold Nectar, “We have been searching for a yellow pole bean with outstanding flavor. This one is it.” Starts fairly early and produces tender beans until late in the season, drying down seed very slowly. This trait is great for delicious snap beans but is a challenge for our seed production. We collected this variety at a seed swap in Belgium; unfortunately we don’t know much about its history, although it might be related to the variety Neckargold.

Direct sow 1″ deep May through late June in rows that are 1′ apart. Thin seedlings to 3-6″spacing. Protect early sowings from frost. Pole snap beans are productive over a long season and only need one sowing unlike their bush snap counterparts. Requires trellising; try T-posts and bailing twine or plant a few weeks after corn or sunflowers for a natural trellis.

Seed Saving

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

    Excellent yellow pole bean

    Where did you grow this variety? Oregon

    This is a beautiful, prolific, delicious yellow snap. The yellow color is a standout in the garden and in the kitchen. It is excellent raw, lightly cooked or pickled. Don’t pass this one up if you are looking for a great yellow pole bean which are hard to fine. I have grown this for three years in Eugene, Oregon.
