Pole Bean ‘Kew Blue’

My amazing gardener friend Alice gave me 3 seeds for this pole bean this spring. All 3 came up and are now over 12′ tall and covered with tasty purple beans. I was excited to try this variety because it’s supposed to be able to handle wetter, cooler weather than many beans and so could be planted a bit earlier here in the Northwest. It’s a beautiful plant and is very productive. I’m letting the first dozen beans mature so I have seed for next year.. and to share!
