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.

Review:

I'm a newbie gardener. This is my first year to grow a vegetable garden. I live in the city, so have limited space. I planted these is a raised bed along with tomatoes and zucchini. I probably planted this bed too close, but I didn't have good luck in this raised bed, but I did with my other two. At any rate, the beans are very good - not tough, no strings. I picked every day. I didn't get a whole lot - probably due to being too crowded. They plants that grew by the zucchini produced very little, again, too close I think. Next year I will space things out more, and either skip zucchini, or find a small variety.

Delicious not pest resistant

What are the pros? Great Germ &Growth, prolific!

What are the cons? Not Disease/Pest resistant

Review:

These were the top producer for a few weeks. Germinated really well, lots of big (but not requiring staking) happy plants with huge amounts of beans popping out everywhere. Then the Mexican Bean Beetles struck. They succumbed almost immediately. The infestation was swift and devastating; being in a community garden I had no time to attempt any sort of rescue. They lose only a star here because I feel that with more time I could have saved them. Terribly disappointing because the beans were delicious! everyone loved them. They didn't last in the fridge or freezer. I attempted a fall harvest but dry conditions and not enough watering on my part meant only a few germinated and none survived. Definitely happier in the cool spring!

A Very Solid Bush Bean
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Very solid producer

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is a solid choice for anyone looking to grow a nice bush bean. I can't recall how quick they were to mature but I didn't notice one way or other so I'd say average. Taste is good and they are fairly productive.

Excellent plant for the FL panhandle. Plant, feed and water and you'll be rewarded with plenty of green beens to last you all summer. Easy to pick and great tasting.

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.
