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.

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.

What are the pros? High producer

Review:

I was certain I would never grow a bush bean again as I have had so much better luck with pole beans....but these beans were superior in flavor and texture and lack of strings. And these plants produce so well for me in upstate NY. Can't wait to grow them again this year.

What are the pros? Fast sprouting, zero diseases

What are the cons? None

Review:

I’ve tried all sorts of beans in our warm to hot humid Louisiana climate and these have proven to be a great choice. Easy growing, fast germination, high volume beans producing over a long period. Best of all is that I’ve experienced no disease or insect issues and I use no chemicals on them. They taste great and remain tender even when very mature.

Review:

These beans are superb! I grew them in a fabric raised bed bag.They didn't take long to start producing, and when they did they reliably put out green beans for most of the summer. Though I had the best of intentions, I really ended up dogging them in the hottest part of summer, and all 5 of the plants I had died. They had some beans on them, which proceeded to dry and eventually drop to the ground. Although I did start some seeds in early fall and transplanted, I have several more going now that just sprouted up of their own accord from the beans of the old plants. So, yeah, very easy to grow. Great taste and texture - no stringy or hard pieces, even when these are harvested a little later than is recommended.
