Bush, 60 days. These beautiful bush beans are a sensation at the farmers market and with local-food chefs. Grown primarily for the stunning pink and white seeds, which make superior shell beans. Can be used as a snap bean, as well. Straight, round pods splashed in red.

Review:

Still growing in Cuba in slightly alkaline soil with a lot of coral chunks and sand. Took on the tail end of our rainy season in December, no problems. Rain ended around New Year's, still no problems. Just took in the first batch of mostly dry beans for next season's seed (sorry BC, not buying more for 2018, I already more than tripled my seed stash). Very cool coloring, ranging from just a few dots of red to a few that are nearly totally red. My son liked the young pods, ate them fresh off the plant. Dog only approved of leaves, said the calima beans were better as fresh pods, but these made fun toys to throw around the back yard because of the color. The plot is just starting to suffer from pests and disease, but the beans will come in before much longer anyway

Review:

Well, I chose to grow these on a Southern border of a corn block. I wasn't going to use them for eating this year as they are brand new to here. I am impressed by how hardy they are. We grew them with less than an inch of water per week and they did really well. Unlike most of our bush beans, they did not turn into pole beans which was is a first out of 17 or so cultivars. Since, we are not selling them to eat this year I cannot give a recommendation for eating; however, friends of ours say they are absolutely delicious to eat as beans or pods. We'll take them at their word. I am just impressed by their color and size of each bean. They cover almost 1/2 of a quarter's broad side this generation. As for the dislike, I believe because we watered so little the pollination was kind of stunted in the heat. It's alright we made out with more than enough to be a net zero balance.

Very much easy to plant. I used a raised bed. Beans came off in one picking and shelled out great, I canned them in pint jars. Highly recommend.
