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.

Had 100% germination. I grew it alongside the contender bush variety. I liked the flavor and texture of this variety that this year I have sown only this.

What are the pros? Amazing flavor, prolific

Review:

I have grown Calima and Cantares green beans for the past 5 summers and will never plant another bean. These are compact, easy to pick plants (beans are more in clusters that the larger cantares plants that seem to produce a bit longer bean) although are lower to the ground (requiring kneeling). The taste is unsurpassed. Sweet, flavorful not stringy or woody. Great flavor for eating fresh or simply steaming or frying. also blanche and freeze well. You will not be disappointed. I plant rows 2 weeks apart for continued harvest thru early fall. Typically get at least 2 harvests from each plant.

Review:

I purchased this seed packet in spring of 2017 and they are still sprouting 100% for fall planting. These little guys popped up after 1 week from a fridge seed storage. The flavor is spectacular as my grand kids will attest to and will be a must buy for future planting.

What are the pros? Easy to Grow - Great Producer

Review:

I planted these beans about two weeks after planting my usual Burpee Green Lake bush beans in early June. They have kept producing long tender beans and are so easy to pick. (today is Sept 27 and my husband just came in with enough for dinner). I plan on gifting these beans to friends next year.
