75 days, Half-runner. This very large, beautiful bean has a distinctive white half or cap, the other half being beige with barn-red and brown markings which it retains when cooked. Mild, earthy flavor complements the silky smooth texture.

Review:

Raised these beans for the first time this year and the yield was phenomenal compared to 3 other varieties that I trialed next to them. Out of the 4, "SNOW CAP" is the one I will continue growing. Pods had 6-8 good sized beans. We had quite a bit of rain and cool weather here in southern Wisconsin, but this did not diminish yield. The only issue is that they grew into tall pole beans (not half-runner)... so midway in season, I had to add fencing and attach tall poles to support them. Now that I know, I'll grow them in my pole bean patch, not with the shorter half-runners. I prefer growing pole beans, so am delighted with this discovery.... recommend you change description in the catalog to "pole bean".

Review:

I really enjoyed this variety. Purchased at Comstock Ferre in Wethersfield, CT packed for 2014. For the best germination rates soak whole beans in a cup of water for 2-3 hours prior to planting. This bean grows on very neat and tidy central vines that reach about 12 feet in height. The flowers of this variety are very small white specs that gradually turn yellow, a huge contrast to more showy varieties like Scarlet or Sunset runner. This is of no consequence because it is the wonderful beans we are after, and Snow Cap does an excellent job of producing many pods for each vine. At around 60 days from germination the leaves will begin to turn yellow and the pods will become more pale in color. Do not pick them yet as this variety is best suited as a dry bean. Allow the vines to undergo their natural cycle and eventually the pods will turn pale yellow and have a dry paper feel to them. They are now ready and can be dried, pod and all, and will make a splendid addition to chili or soup.

Review:

Yes, these are large and good-tasting beans. The markings don't fade completely when cooked, so they're fun to eat!
