60 days. This dark-green bean has been a standard for over 40 years. The bush plants set heavy yields of flavorful pods that are tender and crisp. Developed in 1961 from the Pole Blue Lake.

What are the pros? Flavor...no strings

What are the cons? Runners

Review:

This was my first year growing beans and these did well. The flavor was very good. I made a second planting, and they did just as well. The only negative was that a couple of plants did put out runners which cramped other things that I had planted in the bed. The beans on those two plants were much flatter.

What are the pros? reliably produces large crop

What are the cons? susceptible to rot

Review:

Zone 5B. This was our third year planting this variety, and they reliably produce a heavy crop whether it's wet or dry, and even when weeding around them is neglected. My mother forgot she planted some in the backyard, ignored them until summer, and found them happily bearing beans underneath the grass and thistles. This year we planted two 10-ft rows, and easily harvested a 5 gallon bucket from each. When my family got tired of eating the beans green, we dehydrated them and saved the large white beans for winter soups. My only complaint is that if they are left on the vine past maturity, they won't begin to dry as my other beans do -- they are so moist they are more prone to rot. Do consider that we live in a lowland floodplain, and if you pick them right away, you will never see this problem.

What are the pros? lots of pods, very tasty

What are the cons? none

Review:

These were the first beans I had grown. Some of the plants had very long runners off of them. The runners produced a flat bean, the bush part of the same plant produced normal snap beans. All had great flavor eaten raw or grilled. We will plant these again next summer

Review:

I'm in Zone 6B. These have done nicely, despite the best efforts of the resident rabbits. They produced a ton at first though they now seem to have slowed down a bit.

Review:

This is an update to the 8 rows planted this year. My rows are 12 foot rows plant in Square foot method. Finished picking (2nd) today and have picked a total of 4 5gal buckets from these 8 rows, should have 1 more picking before Texas heat gets them. These are the best green beans I have ever planted. Will be planting again next year. I get about 14gts per 5 gallon bucket, with some to eat fresh.
