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.

What are the pros? Lots of beans per plant

What are the cons? None

Review:

Love these beans. Grow nice and straight. Great for canning and freezing. Plants were loaded with beans and kept producing. Short maturity time. I have planted these for several years and they are my go to beans.

What are the pros? Early, Prolific, Garden Snack

What are the cons? None

Review:

I wish I'd known about this variety years ago. This is my first summer growing Calima beans, and I am impressed! They produce a LOT of beans, and the first bunch in ready to pick early (a real bonus to us Northern gardeners). These beans are delicious - sweet and crunchy with a delightful, "snap" when you bite them. Perfect for snacking while working in the garden, and great for freezing, too.

What are the pros? Tender, productive, delish

What are the cons? Zilch

Review:

Very tasty. I've had "beanier" and more flavorful beans over the years, but sometimes that's not what you want. Sometimes you just want the perfect, standard issue green bean. This is it. Awesomely productive and tender. I think if I failed to grow these one year, my S.O. would have my head. They are her absolute favorite of the 7 or 8 varieties we've tried, and its no contest. See all those other 5 star reviews? They're calling to you.

What are the pros? Taste, appearance unsurpassed!

What are the cons? None

Review:

I have been gardening for over 40 years now and the Calima bean is the best I have tasted thus far. They are so beautiful and straight and have that full bean flavor we all crave. I steam them and I also pickle them, so delicious! They are extremely productive with a crop that gives almost too many beans if you can imagine such a thing. Just when I think I have picked the last picking I find that I am mistaken and am picking still way into the Fall. I would recommend these to everyone and I will be planting these every year. Even if I decide to try other varieties, and I will, the Calima bean will always have a place of honor in my garden.
