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? Grew quickly, great taste

What are the cons? Too easy to miss optimal time.

Review:

Grew this at a school. It grew amazingly well and produced large yeilds, but it was hard to tell exactly when it was ripe and we let it go too far. We will have to make sure we catch our mistake this year, but the taste on the ones we did get was great. Overall, very good bean messed up by our own fault in not paying attention. (The beans are SKINNY! That was the major problem. we kept thinking they weren't ready when they were already past their prime!)

Best Beans EVER

What are the pros? Tasty, beautiful, long

What are the cons? Bushes floppy, need support

Review:

These are the most tasty, uniformly long and beautiful beans I have ever grown. I was a bit crabby when they first started to bush out because the plants are a bit floppy instead of upright self-supporting bushes. THEN the beans started to develop! Beautiful and tasty, and quite prolific. So it's a bush bean that needs a little fence - I will gladly add supports for these beans. They will probably be the only ones I put in my garden ever again!

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

Wonder bean! By far the best I have ever tried. Just like the description says they grow at the top of the bush and have wonderful flavor. I will be planting much more next year. Not sure how well they would do canning though; for how skinny they are.

What are the pros? Just water and pick

What are the cons? Absolutely NONE

Review:

I planted them when it was still cold here and here it is the end of Oct and I picked the last ones for soup. They stayed crisp and young feeling even through the 100 degrees. Goodby to Blue Lake and these will be mine forever.
