Q.Pole Bean Problems (orient Wonder, Purple Pod)

Zone 78723 | kimberlyrco@gmail.com added on September 30, 2020 | Answered

My pole beans were doing fine and then I checked on them today and their leaves looked like this. I know that there is some leaf miner damage, but I’m more worried about the crinkling on the leaves. I have seen some black bean aphids(?) and have been blasting them off with high pressure water.

This is, likely, an infection left behind from the leaf miner damage. If a fungicide wasn't used to prevent this after ridding the plant of the infestation, then it is even more likely.

I would use a fungicide to stave off the infection. Make sure that the soil has a chance to dry out down to about 2 or 3 inches between watering, also.

Here are some articles that will help:
