67 days. This magnificent 6 foot tall Romano pole bean produces a massive crop of huge, tender beans over a long season. The bright green pods are flat and about 7-8 inches long. It continues to be the finest Romano we've ever trialed. Musica remains very tender and delicious even when it reaches its largest size. White seeds.

Phaseolus vulgaris Rich and flavorful beans are fiber-packed veggies that promote digestive health and are excellent sources of antioxidants that scavenge free radicals in the body. They are also nitrogen-fixing legumes; beans gather nitrogen from the air and load it into the soil to feed future crops.

POLE BEAN CULTURE: In the early days, pole beans were planted at the base of rough wooden poles where the vines clung to the bark as they twined upward. Today most gardeners grow pole beans on trellises. To make a trellis, stretch 2 wires between 2 stout posts. The first wire should be about 10 inches above the ground and the second wire at about 5-6 feet. Tie bean string to 1 wire and begin making a V-shaped trellis by zigzagging the string between the 2 wires and wrapping around each wire about every 8 inches. Rough string will stimulate the bean vine's twining habit. See Garden Supplies for bean string and other trellising supplies. Sow seeds along the bottom of the trellis, in rows 3-4 feet apart. If planting to grow on poles, plant 6 seeds at the base of each pole. Grow and fertilize like bush beans.
HARVEST: Due to their continuous growth habit, pole beans are always at different stages of development. Keep the plants well picked to increase overall yields. A 15-20 foot row feeds a family of 4. Plant more for canning or freezing.
SEED SPECS: Minimum germination standard: 80%. Usual seed life: 2-3 years.

Can't say enough good things about this bean. Planted end of April, vines took off and produced like crazy for six months. Delicious Romano flavor, huge pods, still tender even when starting to bulge, and those I missed and left hanging made nice shelling beans. Earned a permanent place in my garden.
