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 taste

What are the cons? none

Review:

I have planted these for several years and will never plant any other kind. They are great producers over a long period. They will tend to die off at some point but if you just keep them watered, they will grow new healthy growth and bloom and produce again. I have had them do this a 3rd time. I started picking from them in early June and they will produce till a good frost ends the season. The flavor is wonderful and they freeze and can well. .

What are the pros? Grew consistently

What are the cons? None

Review:

They germinated at about 100% (ground sown). They didn't get subjected to any disease or pest problems. They produced very well over a longer period than any other variety I have tried. I will continue to grow these because anything that does well in LA heat is something worth growing every year. I actually got tired of picking beans and ended up pulling some plants to make room for something else. The plants were still healthy and producing so I removed the beans. Usually at that point the plants are not producing when I pull them up.

What are the pros? Healthy and productive

What are the cons? None

Review:

The first time I grew beans I grew a vining variety. The fact that cantare is a bush variety makes it so neat and easy to grow. The production is unbelievable, and there have been no issues with diseases. Although we have been having an unusually wet summer, these bean plants are taking it in stride! Cutworms hit a few of the plants but they recovered and are now covered in beans! Very tough, very productive and very recommended!

What are the pros? Dependable producer

What are the cons? Prone to lodging

Review:

Grew this bean out the past two seasons. Reliable producer with white blooms and white seed. Excellent disease resistance and eating quality. I tend to pick when no thicker than a pencil but that is just personal preference as larger pods develop no strings and still can be eaten. From my observations this bean will yield no matter how close you plant nor how poor the soil is. Would be an excellent variety for a first time gardener because you are guaranteed to get a harvest with little work. The only problem I can see with cantare is that it is prone to lodge. A big factor is planting to close and in poor soil. My first year I did exactly this which resulted in more than 1 in 5 plants lodging. Second year I spaced further apart in richer soil. Out of the 25 plants I grew still 2 lodged. I only saved seed from the biggest and thickest stemmed plants which will hopefully remedy this problem. I highly recommend cantare if a high yielding french style green bean is desired.
