What are the pros? High trellis or support system
What are the cons? Nothing
Great producer in our sub tropical spring time. Best bean to germinate from seed planted this year, beans tasty off the vine raw or steamed when they magically turn green. Will plant again.

What are the pros? Great bean all around
What are the cons? None
1st yr growing this bean and will be planting again next year. Make sure you have enough room for 9 to 10ft vines. Beautiful plant. Heavy producer
What are the pros? Beauty and production
I have found the beans we will now grow every year! I have been on the search for the best variety and after trying others. This is it! Very productive and tastes great!

What are the pros? Stunningly Beautiful, Prolific
I planted several seeds-presoaked, in each of two 20 gallon planter tubs in a mixture of soil, chicken manure and aged stall compost (horse/cow). They popped up within a week and never quit growing. Horrible weather this year; extreme high heat, flooding, 2 inches of rain in 30 minutes and high wind over 60mph and these vines just kept growing and producing! The vines and flowers are absolutely beautiful! The plum colored beans are great cooked, fresh in salads, stir-fry, or a crunchy fresh snack with low fat dip. As fast as you can pick the beans, they are back in a few days. It's early August and I have a couple gallons of beans in the freezer and many jars canned, plus eating daily and sharing. You really get your money's worth with these beans.

What are the pros? Taste great
What are the cons? I can't reach them.
These beans are producing great in the garden. I love the texture and strong bean taste. They were no problem to grow at all. I started them in cups in early April (slug problems around here), and gently transplanted them out sometime in May. They took off quickly. Have a good trellis in place at the time of planting! Trust me. I had to keep adding poles that were higher and higher. I can't even reach them anymore. The vines are at least 9 feet, maybe higher. But, they keep producing. I planted about 12 plants, and we've had them for dinner twice a week (family of 4) for about a month now, and they are still going. I think I'll save the top ones for next years seeds. They're even outperforming my Blue Lakes!!! I love them, and will probably buy them again if we eat them all.
