I tried it this yr with mini pop. 40 plants. Mini pop doesn't need pollinating, it grows to the same height as corn on cob. My plants grow to 6 ft and it can be harvest about September time.
The beans are happy to grow up the stems and don't strangle the corn. Think I planted the corn to close together though, as the squash didn't really take off, not enough light. The beans, I grew on the outer plants and also planted dwarf beans around the edge.
Excellent crop of beans and mini pop. Mini pop also needs to be picked before they get to big. It can be eaten though, straight off the plant.
In order to have a healthy plant to support the beans the corn needs to be planted in a trench like spuds and earthed up.
