Pole Snap Bean, Trebona Romano (Organic)

Phaseolus vulgaris. Flat Green Pods. 60 days.

If you are tired of waiting for your pole beans to mature but still wish to grow pole beans because of their season-long production and excellent flavor, look no further. This is a great productive and early green bean with long, flat Romano type pods and large, white seeds that are also good eaten shelled. Our most consistently productive bean, early and throughout the season – just one reason our customers give it rave reviews. Great flavor, too! We received this from Christina Henatsch, a breeder for Bingenheimer Saatgut, a biodynamic seed company in Germany who recommends it for greenhouse production. Who knew?

Geographical Origin

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.

      The trellis for our pole beans is about 7′ tall but more often than not the bean plants grow beyond that height, flopping over & wrapping around whatever they can. We recommend a minimum 6′ trellis for all of our pole bean varieties.

      Bean pods can get up to 8″ long and still be tender.
