Pole, 70-75 days. Rampant vining plants produce tons of large golden pods. The gorgeous pods are ideal when harvested at 6-8 inches, but are often tender at much larger dimensions! The massive pods are a bright, clear buttercup yellow, flat and sometimes almost resemble a loose spiral shape, looking voluptuous hanging from the robust vines. This worthy variety was nearly lost commercially and was preserved by backyard seed savers

What are the pros? pretty, prolific

What are the cons? only first harvest is tender

Review:

Our first harvest of these were tender and delicious; they are still producing, but every subsequent harvest has yielded tough, stringy results. Even slow-cooked a batch (5 hours) with bacon, onion and plenty of liquid. Every mouthful of beans produced a mouthful of fiber to pile on the side of plate. Won't plant again.

What are the pros? Strong growers.

What are the cons? None

Review:

I had ground hogs eat the bottom half of these plants. They left the beans alone, but ate the leaves. They also did that with my other types of beans. But, these plants were able to handle it, where as other plants had to struggle. They fully recovered. Kept producing the whole time. Mid July right now... And they are so loaded. The pods are huge. And beautiful. Also, very little care needed. I only used chicken manure. And, this year, I used grass clipping as a mulch to keep the weeds from the garden. Direct sowed. Put some poles in. And, then they did the rest of the work! They are very strong plants. I also have them in a spot that gets full morning and afternoon sun. But shade in the late afternoon. Not sure if that makes a difference. These are great for children's gardens. The pods grow so big, so quick, and since they are vertical, they don't take up much room.

What are the pros? Tasty, productive

What are the cons? Rust was a problem

Review:

Of several bean varieties I planted in 2015, the Golden Marie Vining beans proved to be the most susceptible to the particular rust fungus present in my garden. In a university demonstration garden I also take care of, the same beans were fine, as the rust fungus did not show up. Still, as Nor'easter beans were more productive over a longer season than the GMVs, I'll stick to Nor'easter for my Romano-style beans this coming season.

What are the pros? Beautiful; easy; delicious

What are the cons? None

Review:

Wanting a yellow bean for color contrast, I picked these up at the seed bank in 2014. The crop was successful enough to save seeds for this year. They sprouted quickly, and grew vigorously once transplanted. I was expecting a yellow wax bean shape; these are more a flat, wide, Romano type. They produce early in the the garden and continue on very well. Easy and fun to grow; prolific and delicious.

What are the pros? Frist year, beans were great.

What are the cons? This year's were useless.

Review:

After commenting on how great these beans were, I ordered them last year. The vines grew; not with the wonderful yellow bean, but a tough green bean that didn't make edible beans at all! What happened? I will try these again, but my disappointment has colored my trust. I won't recommend these until they come true to what they were in 2013.
