What are the pros? Early, delicious, perfect
What are the cons? None
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.
