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? Easy to pick

What are the cons? Vines fall on the ground.

Review:

These beans grow very quickly, have a nice yield and were resistant to pests. Keep in mind they are thin beans, like a pencil, and long. Great for stir fry, flash freezing and for canning. Stringless also. I would plant again!

What are the pros? Straight, tender, easy to pick

What are the cons? Nothing to dislike

Review:

Someone stated that they weren't sure how these beans would can. Let me tell you that they can wonderfully! Nice, mostly straight, lots of beans on each plant, tender! I only planted 2 rows and had beans to use fresh, plenty to can for myself and family members, and even share with friends. These are the only beans I'm planting from now on; they really are that good!!

Good taste very quick
Easy to Grow 5.0

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
Easy to Grow 5.0

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!
