I tried Rattlesnake. It did worse than Fortex Cross, which barely produced a handful. Meeks Running was ok. Red Noodle was spectacular, but my green-bean-loving partner won't eat them. I'm planning to try planting very early varieties, and planting them early.

Anyone else from a hot (90F+) summer area have success with a snap pole bean?

I can’t comment if it will do well in your area but I can recommend Kentucky Wonder pole beans.

Blue Marbutt did exceptionally well here in the heat. Fatman and North Carolina Long Greasy weren't far behind.

In my area hot and humid... cherokee trail of tears usually does well.

I believe Fortex Cross (unstable) is Blue Marbut X Fortex. If Darrel is around, he will likely respond. I didn't list Fortex Cross in the MMMM Beans thread. I have several selections, but it is all old seed (2013 and 2014).
