Pole, 95 days. This is the bean that is said to have come to America with the Pilgrims in 1620. This old cutshort green bean has great flavor and the red/white beans are quite tasty. A long-time staple in the Carolinas.

Review:

My planting of 50 beans resulted in slow growing plants and then those that grew were devasted by Japanese Beetles. (It has been a bad year for them in New York. These were grown in the lower Catskills). The other pole beans I grew did fine. Of the very few I harvested, they were tasty. They had a edamame flavor to them.

Review:

I have grown these in Montana and Northern California. This is actually a Cutshort Bean great for green bean recipes at various stages. If a fat stage, string and head and tail them. For butter Beans they are smallish but good. The pods are small. The vines grow near to full height but what I call tender vining, so don't plant them mixed in with vigorous viners. As soup Beans they are great and store a long time. They are mid season producers that continue almost to frost, and they will produce a few earlier in the season. For saving the seeds of these, keep an eye out for the plant or plants that make the nicest Cutshort pods and save from them. You may want to save a few from the plant that makes the biggest seeds too if you are saving more for dry beans. The pods are almost of the greasy sort, green, yellowing nicely before ripening. Very pretty seeds!
