What are the pros? Heavy producer
What are the cons? short harvest season
Tried these for the first time last year. Very pleased with the amount of beans they produced. I grew them in 2 plastic 'window box type' planters and they thrived. I did multiple sowings because the beans do stop producing after a month or so of harvest. Had enough beans at once to share and freeze.

What are the pros? Perfect bean for my needs.
What are the cons? None.
After having grown many bean cultivars for more than a decade, you get to the point where you are sure you've tried them all – vintage, heirloom, and modern; North American and European – and you settle for what seems to be the most appealing. Then you come across a vlog, and hear about a bean that you have never heard of, and is not available in your country. But you can order it from Baker Seeds, and you do. And front the moment you grow it, you know you are onto something special: excellent germination; robust, very thick seedlings; fast growth; early production; and extremely plump and meaty, even before the beans inside have formed. This bean means business. Landreth, and the true homestead Appalachian pole beans I also tried for the first time, will be what I will grow from here on. Because these days, one needs to get the most for the money one spends, the most from the land one has, and the most from time one has available to grow food.

What are the pros? Flavor
What are the cons? short lifespan
This just might be my all-time favorite bush bean. They have the old time flavor of the best pole beans only in a bush habit. They germinate quickly with direct sowing and the plants mature unbelievably quick. Landreth plants are very productive with 4-5" beans hanging all over the place. However, the prolific production is wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am because in two weeks they are done. So, next year, I will plant them in two week intervals throughout the summer. The pods were somewhat flattened, like a Kentucky Wonder pole bean, and not like the round beans in the product picture. No big deal. The flavor is outstanding and I will plant these again next year. Oh, don't plant to closely because Landreth loves it's space. In one bale I planted several very closely then thinned them to 4" apart. These didn't do so well. The others were 12" apart and they produced more beans than I could can (despite the attack of Japanese Beetles).

What are the pros? Great tasting green bean.
What are the cons? 2 weeks of produce
This is a great tasting green bean and is string less.
Beans produce heavy the first round and after two
weeks it is over. I plan to replant next year.

What are the pros? Great production, flavor
What are the cons? None
This is my second year growing landreth beans. Growing up in Tennessee we always did white half runners, peanuts, and turkey crawl. These beans are more flavorful than any of them. We growing a lot of these to can and for market. Although the white half runners still sale better ( because they are better known ) people that has tried these have came back for more saying they will not can any other bean again. As far as production I did pick 2 rows this morning, 100 foot long and got 25 gallons, ( about 2 1/2 bushels) not to shabby for a heirloom bean. Although I still growing other types for market, this is the only bean that goes into my canning closet!!!!
