What are the pros? Very hardy, forgiving
What are the cons? none at this time
Purchased at Comstock Ferre. A very good start for Good Mother Stallard, I will have this variety every year. The vines for Good Mother Stallard are extremely vigorous, with thick healthy foliage that behave more like a semi-runner. Listed as a pole bean, I opted for a simple 6-foot pyramid trellis made of bamboo. Not even close to the requirements for this great heirloom! By mid July the central vines have reached ten feet in length twisting around in a tornado with nowhere else to go. While other varieties such as Snow Cap and Calypso already have well-developed pods, Good Mother Stallard is only now beginning to form tiny pods. Those familiar with this variety know that is what makes Good Mother Stallard special, it is an excellent dry bean that is worth waiting until the end of the season for. Will post another review when they are ready to be harvested.
