Types (go to “BLOG” to read my post all about BEANS)
All beans belong to the legume family. Shell beans, grown for their protein-rich seeds, are eaten both fresh and dried. Snap beans are cultivated mainly for their pods. Bush types are generally self-supporting while pole beans have twining vines that require support. Runner beans are a type of pole bean that needs cooler growing conditions.
Pole beans are even more sensitive to cold than bush beans; they take longer to mature (10 to 11 weeks), but they produce about three times the yield of bush beans in the same garden space and keep on bearing until the first frost.
