Farmers of the 1930s first began growing Missouri Wonder for its resilience in harsh conditions. They usually grew this bean alongside corn, since the corn stalks provided a handy support for the vines. Housewives preferred this bean for its versatility both as a snap bean and a dry soup bean

Pole type plant produces good yields of 6” long by ½” wide medium green beans. A dual-purpose variety - snap bean and shelled bean use. Great fresh, canned, or frozen. Excellent choice for home gardens

Pole beans are great for small gardens where you have limited space. Pole beans have higher yields than bush beans, but require some type of support. They come in a number of colors, including green, purple, and yellow pods. Plant your pole beans in early summer when the danger of frost is over since pole beans are very sensitive to cold. Plant seeds outdoors directly in the garden. Pole beans require a richer soil than other beans. Plant in 2 to 3 weeks intervals for a steady harvest until about 3 months before first killing frost in the fall. Plants can grow 3 to 10" tall.
Sowing: Place the seeds 2” deep and 10” apart, allowing them to grow on a trellis or other vertical support as soon as they emerge from the soil. If using a teepee structure, plant them in groups of 5-6 plants per pole. Germination usually takes place in 14-20 days. For companion planting benefits, plant pole beans with corn: this provides natural support for both the vines and the corn stalks.
Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil or you may experience poor germination!
Soil Requirements: Requires rich fertile soil in a well-drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.
Growing: Keep the soil moist, taking care not to over water the plants. Beans do not like soil that is too moist. Water during dry and hot spells. Mulch as needed to help conserve moisture, control weeds and regulate soil temperature. 
Harvesting: Expect your first beans about 10 weeks after germination. For best flavors pick the beans when they are no larger than a pencil in thickness. Pinch or cut the pods off carefully to avoid damaging the plant. Pick every few days for tender beans. Frequent harvesting also encourages plant to produce more pods.
