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? 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.

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.
