Review:

These beans grow fast once they are on the bush! Some got away from me for regular bean eating, so we dried them for beans for soup for this winter. I plan to plant them again as we really enjoyed them.

Review:

I have these growing under LED lights. Out of ten seeds started, ten sprouted, with only one having any kind of an issue. ( The plant was rooting over its own stem and I decided to pull it ). In two months, these plants have grown to almost 3 feet. They are vining up a trellis and flowering beautifully. I expect to pull some beans to try fresh, but the rest are intended for use as beans I love the flavor of these as beans.. This plant is one of the easiest to grow. Plant it next to a trellis and let it be. Since I grow indoors, I have fans blowing on it to help pollinate, but they should do even better outdoors. I look forward to seeing what kind of a harvest I get from these. So far, so good. As of right now, I plan to plant again this spring.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? not as prolific as other beans

Review:

This is my first year growing them. As young, tender fresh beans I find them only so-so. Not as tender as your fresh eating beans. I am excited to use them as a shell bean. That said, the plants grew great and even though I only planted a small quantity (and the rabbits made a meal out of my bean plants), I had enough to yield a couple of pounds of shelled beans. The shells are beautiful and beans themselves are stunning!

Review:

Such a pretty plant. I ordered many different types of beans. This is one of my favorites. I pick our beans early and we eat them fresh in salads. I loved this one raw. Then one day I cooked them. Amazing, sooooo good. This was my first year planting and my soil was to heavy and my plants had a hard time rooting well. Despite this my bean plants and this one has done extremely well. We get enough for a daily meal for a family of five. Since my plants are not as big due my soil mistake I have about 10 plants and they are not ver big, but they produce well. A must try....

Review:

I planted these on Mothers Day and have been picking them now, July 9th, for almost 2 weeks. The plants and seeds are very vigorous - they were the first beans up from the soil and seemingly every one sprouted. The plants are a little over three feet, bright springy-green leaves, full, nice enough to be mixed in the flower border. I planted them with some supports so can't say if they would be fully self-supporting. Haven't been troubled by beetles. The beans are delicious and beautiful. So far, we've only eaten them fresh off the vine or blanched with olive oil or butter - if any of them make it from the garden into the house- at a size of about four 1/2 inches, though some were larger after a return from a week's vacation. They have been flavorful, meaty and stringless at any size so far. Haven't yet used them as recommended for baked beans. An unexpected plus: the red markings make them easy to find to pick. Will definitely grow again.
