French Climbing Bean

Phaseolus vulgaris
The French Climbing Bean needs solid supports to climb up. They have no tendrils as peas do, but wind themselves up the pole counter-clockwise up to 2.5-3 m. Sow 4-6 seeds around each pole. It is a good idea to bind 3-4 poles together at the top like an Amerindian tipi or allow them to wind up along wires in a green house. French Climbing Beans need more time to develop ripe pods. Pre-cultivation is a good idea for less advantageous places. Grow them in green houses to get reliable crops in the northern half of Sweden (or similar temperate zone). You get a very good crop from quite a small space. These tall plants are rarely attacked by diseases and the taste of the long pods exceeds that of bush bean pods. They are easy to pick and the harvest goes on for a long time.
