A Dutch breeder developed the Seychelles pole bean to produce long (5-6”), uniform, straight stringless pods with an excellent flavor. This AAS Winner produces high yields in multiple crops over the growing season and is easy to maintain. Whether grown in the garden or in a pot on the patio, Seychelles grows 7-9 feet tall on vigorous dark green vines and should be grown on supports, thus, its classification as a pole bean. Foodies, vegetarians, and vegetable-lovers will all enjoy this productive bean that is fast-growing and early-to-produce crisp delicious pods. Photos courtesy of AAS.
Care: Plant 4-6″ apart in rows 18-36″ apart in full sun. Vines grow 6-8′ tall; provide support. Harvest dry beans when 90% of leaves have yellowed and fallen off.
