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.

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!!

What are the pros? Delicious, easy to grow

What are the cons? None

Review:

Started these inside 2 weeks before last frost. But didn't actually get them into the garden until about a month later. (Just had a baby) I wasn't sure they were even going to make it, they were VERY neglected, but about 3 weeks later they had about 10 beans pods on each plant and they didn't make it inside, the kids and I ate them all raw. So sweet and delicious!
