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? nice long beans

What are the cons? none

Review:

the best bean i have grown in south west Texas. I start planting them late summer and have some wonderful crops till after Thanksgiving. Then I plant again early spring. Great taste, easy to grow, plants came back after a deer got in the garden (2x) and produced even better. Bushes are not very sturdy but produce well, watch out for rust during wet weather.

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Bean rust

Review:

My first review for seeds/a variety. I froze tons of beans. Great producer, great taste, tender, resisted bean rust or some other fungal disease for the longest time. Finally got it though. I cut the plants down , now it's growing healthy leaves again. We'll see what it'll do. Will always grow this variety.

What are the pros? Easy to pick, early, sringless

What are the cons? None

Review:

I just planted a short row of these...I wish I had planted more. My 18 year grandson ate them like candy when I made them. They are awesome. I love the French Filet beans and these are definitely the best I have grown.

What are the pros? Germination, yield, TASTE!

What are the cons? not a good canning bean

Review:

Definitely a 5-star bean in all categories: reliable germination, vigorous growth, moderate yield, easy to find and pick; not stringy, and by far the most delicious green been for the table if cooked al dente. I always find room for this variety in the garden. Really, if you want a canning bean there are better varieties as the small pods will turn to mush, but they do freeze well if properly prepared.
