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:

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.

Just a good grean bean, nothing special, requires a decent amount of water to stay juicy compared to the other beans.

What are the pros? Great Flavor, Great Production

What are the cons? None!

Review:

Planted these a little late for fall (planted in late July), but almost all the seeds germinated and sprouted rather quickly. I already have picked some mature beans and more are on the way. This is a gourmet bean and I am impressed with the sweet and earthy flavor and the excellent snap these beans maintain when cooked. Not stringy at all! I will keep this variety in my garden rotation.

Review:

I planted a 20 ft row of these and receive 4 large paper bags full of beans this year. So many that i stopped there and let the rest sit on the plant for bean seeds next year. They are very sweet uncooked and are tasty even after sitting on the vine too long. No complaints.

Best Bean Ive ever had

What are the pros? Easy, stringless, tender

What are the cons? None

Review:

These are seriously the best bean I've ever eaten or grown! I just tried my first ones off the plant today. I kept coming back to the plants all day today hoping I missed some or that they had magically grown more in a matter of hours. Haha! They are very crisp, hold their shape, are completely stringless, stay nice than thin, and taste great! Will be planting every year!!
