Cantare Bean

Bush, 50-55 days. Superior producer of nice straight dark green pods for snaps. The slim 4-5-inch pods are stringless and the flavor is every bit as outstanding as the yield! This French variety makes a fine crop for market growers or home gardeners. Excellent tolerance to bean mosaic virus.

What are the pros? Great germination, huge yields

What are the cons? Falls over easily

Review:

This is my first year growing green beans, and wow, did these not disappoint. We had a very early hot summer, and the beans took the heat and just produced massive amounts of pods. I'm not typically a fresh green bean eater, but this variety may have changed that. Only downside is that the plant can grow fairly tall, which caused some of them to topple over and break off. Definitely will grow this bean again and again!

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Small, stringy, won't grow

Review:

I planted these beans in Texas and shared some with my parents in Virginia. Although the plants have flowered and produced beans, in neither state did the bush get more than about 8 inches tall. The beans are very small, and most that I picked last night had strings. My parents also have lots of strings on their beans. I picked only enough to fill a berry bowl. I've not been happy with these beans and will not grow them again. Green beans are my favorite crop by far. I had hoped to have beans all season. I was disappointed. Maybe I did something incorrectly, but my parents are having the same problems on the east coast.

Delicious bean
Easy to Grow 3.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Tender and productive

What are the cons? Tall bush

Review:

Great bean, but I wish some of the bushes hadn't grown as tall as they had and subsequently fell over, breaking off and dying! Bummer! The bushes that didn't completely fall over and die did produce beautiful, meaty, tasty, dark green pods that were fun to pick and eat. They freeze great too. I also noticed that they don't go flimsy if left at room temperature for a day or two like some of my other beans. They still snapped! This is the second highest producer in my garden, besides the Galopka bush bean. It probably would have tied if not for the plants toppling over. Kinda frustrating because I really enjoyed this bean! I recommend planting against a fence. They won't climb but at least they'll have some support. Not sure if I'm going to replant next year. May try out different varieties.

What are the pros? Amazing Flavor/ Productivity

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted a 20 foot row of these Cantare beans this spring. I planted 6 plants per square foot, two rows of three within the square foot. We have green beans coming out of our ears and they are delicious. Best green beans I have ever had. These will be a permanent crop for us from here on. Highly recommended! We picked a pound the first day we saw beans big enough to pick. Four days later we picked two pounds. It looks like we will be able to pick every 3-4 days and as a family of four, 2 adults and two very young children it's more than we can eat unless we want them everyday! We have given away several pounds to family and friends already. Grow these! They are amazing!

What are the pros? Heavy Producer, not fussy

What are the cons? needs staking

Review:

Followed the square foot method and planted 9 plants per square. Did not start out with stakes and ended up with a tangled mess. Each Square has produced almost 4 cups of beans already and there are still some plants flowering.
