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:

Love these beans and will hands down grow next year. Found this package of seeds dated 2013 at the bottom of my seed box and thought I'd plant them in July not expecting much! Was I surprised! Excellent germination rate even though they were a year old. Plants are very prolific and the beans are sweet and tender. Love how they stay tender and slim even though the may get a little long. Really enjoyed them over the Fin De Bagnols I planted earlier in the season. Love Baker seeds!

What are the pros? Lots of great tasting beans

What are the cons? Dosent like to stand upright

Review:

Great tasting with lots and lots of beans, as long as you pick they will keep on blooming and producing. They are easy to can because of the 6-8" long slender beans. Off of eight rows eight feet long we canned 36 pints and had all the fresh green beans we wanted and let the first planting go to seed. The second planting is about to start blooming, eight more rows. The only down side is getting them to stand up right with all the beans on them. They tend to fall over, to solve this problem we put newspaper in between row when they start to bloom. This gives them a place to lay over and keeps the beans clean. Also helps retain water in soil. This is are second year and our favorite. They make excellent canned green beens. With these long straight beans take 8-10 beans wrap with a piece of bacon and put on the grill untill the bacon is as you like, cant be beat..Enjoy the harvest

Review:

These beans were great producers. We had a winter that never quit this year along Lake Michigan, so it took a bit longer than 50 days to get to maturity this year in 2014. Once they started producing, we had to eat beans almost every day, or bring bags of them to work to give away. When the beans begin to form from the flower, they grow so fast that you will be absolutely amazed. I found that the beans were very straight and still maintained a nice slim diameter even when the beans got to be 8-9 inches long. I will purchase these again in 2015 rather than harvest seed this year since I had several different varieties of Baker Creek seeds in adjacent rows that had flowered at the same time.

Review:

These are seriously the best beans I've ever grown and eaten! Great germination rates, fast growing, and the beans are AMAZING! I'm not usually a fan of fresh green beans, and had planned to can these, but we ate them ALL and couldn't get enough, so there weren't any left for canning! Usually fresh beans have a "hairy" texture to me, but not these! I picked them rather thin, and they were so mild tasting and delicious. Right now I'm on my second planting, and I can't wait to have fresh beans again! Next year I will be planting an entire raised bed full!
