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 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.

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.

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.

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!
