The world's tallest bean plant.

treeguy123(AL 7b)June 27, 2008

The world's tallest bean plant was grown by Staton Rorie (USA) in 2003. It was 46 feet 3 inches (14.1m) tall.

I was wondering if anybody knew what type of bean plant was grown to set this Guinness world record?

If not, what is the tallest type of bean plant you know of?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I wish I knew the answer to that. I've never thought about growing a bean taller than my reach and probably not many gardeners have. I'm curious.
