Beans 101: Greasy, Horticultural, Cornfield

15 years ago

I feel like such a newbie asking. Can someone explain the diFferences between these beans.

All I know is that greasy beans look "greasy." Are they snap or shell? Bush or pole?

From what I've read Horticultural beans can be eaten as either snap or shell. Are they bush or pole? Do all of them look mottled or streaked?

I'm out in left field when it comes to cornfield beans. I take it they are a pole bean but meant to climb up corn stalks.

Any info on these varieties would be greatly appreciated.

~Sigh~ Seven years of gardening & there is still so much to learn.
