Bush, 50-55 days. French filet type pods of dark green color, slim straight shape, and superior flavor! Pods are held conveniently at the top of the stocky bushes; pick them when no thicker than a pencil. Fine for fresh use, canning and freezing.

What are the pros? Delicious!

What are the cons? Not as prolific as I had hoped

Review:

So initially they were cranking out beans, and then a sudden stop. Now we get one or two beans per plant. Not many at all....when all the other varieties are still cranking them out. Short lived but they were/are so so delicious. Still worth the space. I'll try again in fall to see if maybe it is a heat thing? I'm sad because these are by far my favorite bean I've grown as far as flavor. Just wish it was more prolific.

Review:

Just finished our third mess of these beans for this year, garden got in a little late. This is our third or fourth year of growing this bean exclusively. It is by far our favorite of all the green beans we've tried. Follow the advice and harvest just around pencil thickness and you will be rewarded with a great meal. These beans last all summer even in our hot, and humid summers. They produce well, we've reduced our planting to a 40cm x 600cm bed and we have more than enough for the two of us. They can very well also but we're planting a second cropping in a bit to carry as far into the winter as we can this year cause. Would recommend this bean to anyone looking for a great tasting, easy to care for bean.

Review:

Pretty plants, prolific, nice very long tender beans that remind me of the string beans we ate as a kid. Delicious fresh, slightly sweet, crisp, juicy! Steamed or sauted is great too! Once they get going the take off like crazy. Lots of long slender beans.

Review:

We loved these beans. We grew them last year and had plenty to give to neighbors who promptly asked what kind they were because they were so delicious! They were easy to grow and produced well.

Review:

Such a tough little plant, large yileds of very fine filet beans. They freeze really well, if you manage to have leftovers after friends and family raid the garden or the fridge and pillage your harvest. :) I'm reserving a larger space and will succession-sow them aggressively in this year's garden so I have enough to keep for winter *and* bean lovers close to us. Last year I tuck as much as I could of the small bush at the front of the ornemental beds, they look nice enough for an "edible landscape". We've been growing it for 3 or 4 years now and we'll grow it for as long as we have a vegetable garden.
