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? 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.

What are the pros? Hardy, compact, high yield

What are the cons? Soft when frozen

Review:

These beans make a great choice for a garden with limited space. The bushes are nice and compact and we had a fantastic yield over a very long season. I froze a lot and they were slightly soft out of the freezer, so I plan to try a different variety this year, but for fresh eating I have absolutely no complaints! Tasty and prolific.

What are the pros? Tons of deliciousness

What are the cons? Hard to keep 'em picked :-)

Review:

Best mistake I've ever made: I meant to order pole beans, thinking they were more prolific and easier to pick. I will never go back, because these Cantare produce many times more beans, and they are consistently delicious through every condition Zone 5 throws at them. I have learned to enjoy sitting down to pick them :-) I always plant radishes near beans, but these plants had no rot/blight/fungal problems at all. A very high percentage germinate and thrive, so I did not have to plant a second batch to fill in as with other varieties. I only wish everything else in my garden were half as successful!
