What are the pros? Lots of beans
What are the cons? to control strings keep pickin
I was so impressed with these beans. I live in Northwest Missouri and our climate is amazing for these beans. They were by far my best growing bean this year. They are amazing if you keep them harvested. I harvested every other day so the pods wouldn't get too big. The larger they get the more stringy they are, but the small, young beans don't have that problem. When my canner went out this summer, I had people begging for the harvest after they tasted them. Toward the end of the summer I let them fill out for shelling. I like them green better, but the shelled beans are quite good too. In this area, they are really hard to beat in growth and harvest.

What are the pros? Taste and how they produce
What are the cons? None
I have been growing these beans at least for 10 years. I love them so much I won't grow anything else. One year I grew 2 rows on 8 foot tall woven wire. They grew to the top and lapped over the top and created a tunnel. I picked beans from both sides of the rows and from the top. They made me a good shade while I picked the inside. They will produce right up to late fall. I don't even mind that they are string beans.

What are the pros? Nice beans
What are the cons? Did not perform as expected
I purchased this Wonder variety at the MO store. It was just an experiment to see if it would perform better than KY Wonder in hot, dry CA. Side-by-side comparison, the KY did better. Would recommend it for other parts of the country.

What are the pros? history
What are the cons? none
I am not writing to rate the beans, just to give you some historical background. I am typing up some letters my great-grandmother wrote from South Dakota (where she lived about 10 years) back home to her daughter in MO, in a letter dated July 6, 1927 and she is talking of her garden, writes: " I took binding twine tried to have the Missouri Wonder run on that, don't know how it will work but it is the best I can do (she had earlier said she had no sticks, there)." So, since she was talking about peas and beans at the time, I looked up the name to see what it was, and found your site, saying it was introduced about 1931. Unless it's a different plant with the same name, she knew it well enough to be planting it in the garden in 1927.
