Bush, 50-55 days. French filet type pods of dark green color, slim straight shape, and superior flavor! Pods are held conveniently at the top of the stocky bushes; pick them when no thicker than a pencil. Fine for fresh use, canning and freezing.

Review:

I garden in raised beds and have never gotten more than a small pan of beans before with Blue Lake and Jade….but all that changed this year. I did a 4x8 bed of Calima beans and they have produced amazingly! Enough beans every couple days for a dutch oven full! Still producing fair when looks to be about all they will do! Will not grow anything else!

Review:

This is the first year I grew this variety of green bean. Love it! I sold some locally and even with two 75ft rows could not keep up with the demand. I am replanting for a fall crop and will grow a lot more next spring. These are delicious and produced a lot. My 75 year old dad, wanted to know what they were and he has always grown Kentucky Wonders. I like that they are narrow and round and look very nice as well as taste good. I am ordering more today for me and Dad!

Easy to grow in our unamended high - PI heavy clay soil, alkaline. Got tons of tasty beans, plants were roughly 15 inches tall in our soil, no support needed. Highly recommend.

Review:

I had given up on green beans for a few years because I could never find just the bean I wanted: skinny, straight beans that actually produce enough to be worth growing and don't get stringy and tough when you forget to pick them for a couple days. With Calima I have found the perfect bean. About 2/3 of the beans are perfectly straight, which is pretty amazing considering, and they just don't get very big around at all. They're delicious about 1/8" but still delicious three days later when they're the size of a #2 pencil. I have yet to find one that was tough or stringy. Haven't tried canning them but they are so good in a cast iron pan with bacon and onions I doubt I'll have enough left over to bother canning anyway. Next year I'm planting more.

Review:

These beans are wonderful. We just ate our first harvest (tossed with balsamic vinegar and roasted). Having NEVER gardened before, I was pretty much just winging it. These beans had nearly 100% germination and though we did go through a period of pale yellow leaves, it was easily corrected with a little fertilizer. Very easy to grow, Very good taste. They are the first of my garden to produce, so so I have the
