Cascade Giant Stringless Pole Bean (65 days)

Sustainably Grown  Approx. 20 heirloom seeds

This stringless selection was created from the Oregon Giant Pole bean. 

Cascade Giant is a wonderful variety for the West Coast or damp conditions with cool nights. Cascade Giant yields a profusion of 8-10" straight, dark green pods mottled with purple. Fantastic for canning or fresh eating.

California Grown Heirloom Bean
Out of all the pole beans we trialed this was the premier pole bean for our cool coastal foggy nights.  When other beans developed problems Cascade Giant just kept putting out beans.  In fact the only problem we had was keeping people from the winery pulling them off the fence and eating them!

Planting Tips:

50-60 days for green, 100+ days for dry beans.  Some vines can reach 12’ long, so provide adequate support.  Not cold tolerant, beans need warm soil of 65 degrees or better.  Regular harvesting of the young pods will ensure a greater yield.  Grows best in full sun with well watered soil.  Boost yields and germination by adding inoculants.

Make sure to provide adequate support for these vigorous climbers!  A strong fence or twine hung on a strong pole will give them plenty of room to grow and good harvest yields.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.

    We love this heirloom bean. It performs here in Portland where no other pole bean will. My son even loves the taste of the green beans!
