The Lazy Housewife Pole Bean is completely stringless.
First listed in W. Atlee Burpee's 1888 catalog, "We presume it derives its name, which seems discourteous, from its immense productiveness making it easy to gather..." Brought to America by German immigrants, these beans were so named because they were the first beans to not require destringing!
Can be used as a shell bean as well, and has a superb flavor. Plants bear continuously until frost. One of the oldest documented beans. Very old and very productive.
75-80 days to snap stage. (Snap, Shelly and Dry Bean)
Approx 50 seeds per pack
Outdoor Sowing Recommended.
Beans need well-drained soil and at least 6 - 8 hours of full sun. When all danger of frost is past, and the ground is thoroughly warm, plant beans 1.5" deep, every 3 - 4", firming soil over seeds. Water weekly in dry weather. Planting every 3 weeks until midsummer assures a continuous supply of beans.
