Review:

This bead sprouted easily, grew well and produced loads of beans. The only drawback was the bean beetles love the leaves! Great tasting beans on loaded bushes.

What are the pros? Lost of Beans Quick

What are the cons? don't like hot and dry

Review:

Got these a few years ago from BC. Been saving my own ever since. I plant early as possible in 4' rows between 10 and 30 rows depending on how many we need to can and how stocked up on seeds we are. Our caning is usually done in June. Sometimes we plant a few late ones too to eat fresh in the fall . It gets bad hot and dry here in IN anymore and beans don't like that but if you plant early you can get your beans canned before the heat arrives. You can do that with Providers too but I don't like the flavor as well.
