Why are my pole green beans skinny instead of round? I pick them at six inches or more and they are flat instead of rounded.

This is likely a normal occurrence with the variety you have. If some of the pods on the plant are round, while others are flat and have only tiny beans inside, it is also possible that the flat beans have been damaged by excessive heat or by poor pollination.
