The pods are six to eight inches long, slightly curved, dark green in color, and round in cross section. They are very tender and tasty eaten fresh as well as excellent frozen. All the attributes of the old standard 'Kentucky Wonder' pole bean but in a bushy plant instead of a vine. The original 'Commodore' bean was an "All-America Selection" winner in 1945. Each ounce is approximately 75 seeds.

Planting Instructions:
Beans prefer well-drained, rich soil in a sunny location. Make sure you keep them well watered in the summer heat.

Beans are a tender vegetable and you should not plant them until all danger of frost has passed and the soil remains above 65ºF. Sow seeds 1-1½ inches deep, every two to three inches. Bush-type beans do not require support.

For seed saving, allow pods to remain on the plant until they are brittle and open easily. However, if you live in an area with a short growing season, harvest as close to dry as possible and finish drying indoors. Rain and freezing temps will damage beans.
