Bush. 57 days. Old standard French haricot verte (horticultural or filet) bean that has been grown for at least a century! Dwarf plants thrive in cooler soils; really crank out small, slender, round green pods. Best harvested every 3 to 4 days, at 3 to 4 inches in length, when the pods are quite slender and free of strings. Succession plant a row every three weeks for an unending supply of superior gourmet beans. Premium variety at farmer’s markets!
