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:

Grew these for the first time this year and love them. Germination rate was over 90%. The plants grew fast and large and have been loaded with beans for 2 solid weeks now, even though daytime temps have reach 90 . We picked a bunch of them young and they tasted great sauteed with a little butter and garlic. Also let many of them grow large and then we canned them. These beans really are stringless, even when very large. They snap easily and hold their firm texture. We've grown several French bean varieties in the past and this is by far our favorite. We'll be growing more of these next year for sure.

Review:

I planted half of the package of beans in nearly mid-June. Approximately two weeks later, a baby bunny must have sneaked in thru the fence and ate most of the plant tops leaving barely a nub of stem. So, I planted the other half of the package. All of the plants that were eaten grew back! Nearly every seed germinated! Once I began getting beans I was picking them quickly to catch them when small, as most bean types I've grown in the past get stringy and chewy when they grow too large. NOT THESE! There were many that I missed during picking and they got quite large. Plus the summer was so hot that most days I didn't feel like picking them and many got overgrown. All of the beans, any size, were delicious! These beans have the best, true, heavenly green bean flavor with no bitterness. They cook quickly and freeze well too. They were my favorite veggie for 2016! I plan to grow two packages this coming summer! We did use Miracle grow a few times and we watered regularly. Blue ribbon beans!

What are the pros? Great production

Review:

Best bush type I've grown. They are far hardier and more prolific than cantare or blue lake bush. They are the first to produce beans and produce them far longer and more frequently. It also seems that the beans stay at peak picking size a bit longer, so they are more forgiving about when you pick them. They stay thinner and more tender longer!
