62 days. This is a selection of the old McCaslan bean that was grown by the McCaslan family of Georgia before 1900. This strain was selected by the Corneli Seed Company of Saint Louis in 1962. The dark-green pods are stringless and full of flavor. The white seeds are also great for a dry bean. Extra productive and hardy.

Review:

I've been growing these for 2 years and are the best dry beans I have tried. We harvested 8 lbs of dry beans today August 14th off of a 24ft row. No pests or any problems except that my 12ft poles could of been longer. These beans make excellent beans for baked beans and ham and beans. And best of all we just planted and watched them grow, over 12ft tall and would have done more because they bunch up at the top of the poles which become very top heavy.By the way four 5-gallon buckets of dry beans shell out to 8 lbs. Try these for great young green beans or for there great dry beans.

Review:

I bought these beans from Baker Creek three years ago. They are doing great this year in a mild Virginia summer. They need a lot of support as the vines get very long. Great bean flavor, and stringless if picked at about 4-5 inches. I'm also going to try them as a shelling bean because some just got away from me. Will definitely be growing again.

Review:

Trialed this variety along with 6 other pole bean varieties intended for dry use. McCaslan 42 had the heaviest set of beans among those trialed in the hot/dry year of 2012 (with limited irrigation) in central Missouri. Very tall plants made good use of tall cedar tripod trellis.

Review:

I have been eating these beans since my childhood. They are a very rich tasting bean and are great for fresh or canning. They are also good for shelly's, you Tennessee folk know what that means. They are a vey hearty producer but be sure to support them as they will take over your garden. Give em a try folks, you wont be sorry.
