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.

What are the pros? Small bush

What are the cons? Texture of beans

Review:

Zone 5, these bush beans grew small, but full plants. I only had one plant, but it produced a bunch of beans. I thought it was finished, but it is still producing! The only thing that bothers me is the rough texture on the outside of the beans (weird, I know).

What are the pros? Super high yield

What are the cons? Must harvest nearly daily

Review:

The contender bush bean was a surprise in the garden this year. A single 8' row yielded pounds and pounds and pounds of beans! Beans were tasty when young but quickly turn fibrous so be sure to not let a day go by without picking. While this bush bean could have used a bit of support, we didn't stake or support them but next time I plan to prove some support. Pests did bother the leaves but I elected to not use any organic or non-organic sprays or dusts. I found that this bean was vigorous enough to outpace any "sharing" we had to do with the pests. Absolutely our go to bush bean for 2014.
