Pole beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) are great climbers, and growing them on a bamboo and twin trellis, according to Seed Savers Exchange, and then harvesting them when they’re ready is super easy to do, giving your back a break.
Whether they’re green, yellow, or purple, pole beans take a bit longer to mature, which is good as it allows you time to harvest what you need periodically without getting buried in a sea of beans you need to use. Try growing pole beans on an arch trellis for beautiful (but functional) outdoor decor.
