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? Small plant, massive producer

What are the cons? None

Review:

I'm relatively new to gardening. Thus far I've tried growing Dragon Tongue beans, which don't do well here it seems (they produce a few beans then die), Rattlesnake beans, Asparagus beans, and these Calima beans. The Calima are my favorite. The bushes are really small. They don't take over the garden, but they crank out beans like nothing else I've planted, and they taste fantastic! I have a small garden. I have 2 plants each of the Calima, Rattlesnake, and Asparagus beans out there this season. The Rattlesnake and Asparagus have given us a good harvest, no complaints there, but those 2 Calima bushes have put out more beans than the other 4 combined. They're amazing! I swear there are new beans to be picked every day I go out there. I can't believe they grow as fast as they do. I'll be planting more of these next year. Perhaps only these given my limited space. Highly recommended!

What are the pros? thin, straight, long producer

What are the cons? sometimes grows butt-end up

Review:

This is a new variety for me. I've always been a Blue Lake girl. BUT, this is my new favorite! I've been pleasantly surprised at how long these beans stay thin and tender on the plant. No strings at all. It's a great variety for someone who doesn't have the time to pick every other day. That'd be me. They began producing a month ago and are still setting many blooms. The picking season is long and forgiving. Some pods have been up to 9" long but still relatively thin! The only thing I don't care for is that they sometimes grow butt-end up. This makes them a little slower to pick. You have to find the attached end. This may be because they're planted a little close though. I did kinda jam them in a 4'x6' garden square. Next year they'll have more space and I'll try to update my review then. Right now I'm absolutely loving them! Thanks, Baker Creek Seeds!

Review:

This is my first year of growing these, and man these little bush beans are loaded, the plants were actually falling over they are so heavy with beans. These are great flavor, and tasted amazing steamed. These will go on the "Must have" list!!
