All about Beans

What's the Difference between Pole & Bush Beans?

The difference between pole beans and bush beans is how they grow.  Beans that grow in vines and need support are called "pole beans" while beans that are self-supporting are called  "bush beans."

Most all green beans are available in either pole or bush. 

  • Some popular pole beans are Kentucky Blue, Kentucky Wonder and Blue Lake. 
  • Some of the popular bush beans are Blue Lake 274, Kentucky Wonder, Festiva and Burpee's Tenderpod.  
Beans, pole and/or bush: includes butter, green, snap, string, wax
Beans, broad: includes pinto, lima, soy, garbanzo, black-eyed peas, lentils, kidney (large flat or round bean)
