What are the pros? very heavy yeld, good taste

What are the cons? plants need tutoring

Review:

I love these beans. The taste is great and can be sowed directly in the soil zone 5a. I planted the whole package and I had only 2 not germinated seeds. The plants gets big and needs tutoring to hold this amount of beans. I can pick within 4-8 pounds of beans daily from this variety. Fruits are tender, big and have a delicate flavor. They totally meet my expectations and I would recommend to anyone planning to self sustain or market sell. Good space saving.

What are the pros? Tons of beans off each plant

What are the cons? none

Review:

I planted these in different places in my garden, some under the shade of squash, some under okra, some in part shade near other beans. The best producers were under the squash and okra. They did fall over because there were so many beans on each plant. They cooked up very tender and tasty. I will be growing these every year.

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.
