What are the pros? Great Germ &Growth, prolific!
What are the cons? Not Disease/Pest resistant
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!
