Pole, 85-90 days. Gorgeous, plump maroon-and-white
beans are great in soups, where their creamy texture and
hearty, nutty flavor really shine. Generations of gardeners
have grown this pole variety that yields 5-6 beans per
pod—outstandingly productive! Originally introduced by
our friend Glenn Drowns. Superior in baked beans, and
also makes a fine shell bean.

What are the pros? amazing flavor
What are the cons? a little late for my area
These are amazing, I had no idea how tasty a bean could be! We have eaten them in soup and as baked beans so far and LOVE them. I plan to devote a large space in my garden to these next year.

What are the pros? Low Maintenance, plentiful
What are the cons? none
Good germination rate, grew well with little or no care, were prolific! They nearly took over parts of my tomatoes and corn with long vines. Lots and lots of beans; eat them green and fresh or wait til they start to dry on the vine and shell and store. Great flavor too - you cannot go wrong with these.

What are the pros? Tough in wet weather
This is my first year growing these, and we are having miserably weird weather out here---high heat with torrential rains every other day, leading to standing water, miserable humidity, and every kind of rot and mold. Most of my usual vegetables have given up the ghost in these conditions, but these beans have scrambled up their arch and produced pod after pod of gorgeous beans. I don't know how they'll do in a normal year, but they're outperforming all the other beans right now!
