What are the pros? everything!
What are the cons? none
I've been growing these beans for 3 years now, and will continue forever! The plants are compact, and the production is amazing. Out of a 4'x8' bed, I am able to pick enough beans the fill 4 pint jars every other day...for 3 months!! That's a lot of beans! They're very tender, never a string or tough end, and the flavor is wonderful. They hold up well to canning, never getting mushy, and hold their flavor though the year. These are definitely a permanent fixture in my garden!
The only problem I have is that my dogs like them too, and I have to fence them securely to keep the dogs from picking all of them!

If there is such a thing as perfection the cantare green bean is it! They hold flavor exceptionally well. I have been growing them for 2 years and I will continue only growing this bean. It's the end of September and I'm still picking beans. I planted these in the beginning of May and they show no sign of stopping. The plants get no taller then 2 feet tall, no staking required. I do use small tomatoe cages to keep them off the ground. My only complaint is that I didn't grow enough of them.

What are the pros? Great taste
I have planted these for several years and will never plant any other kind. They are great producers over a long period. They will tend to die off at some point but if you just keep them watered, they will grow new healthy growth and bloom and produce again. I have had them do this a 3rd time. I started picking from them in early June and they will produce till a good frost ends the season. The flavor is wonderful and they freeze and can well. .
What are the pros? Grew consistently
What are the cons? None
They germinated at about 100% (ground sown). They didn't get subjected to any disease or pest problems. They produced very well over a longer period than any other variety I have tried. I will continue to grow these because anything that does well in LA heat is something worth growing every year. I actually got tired of picking beans and ended up pulling some plants to make room for something else. The plants were still healthy and producing so I removed the beans. Usually at that point the plants are not producing when I pull them up.
What are the pros? Healthy and productive
The first time I grew beans I grew a vining variety. The fact that cantare is a bush variety makes it so neat and easy to grow. The production is unbelievable, and there have been no issues with diseases. Although we have been having an unusually wet summer, these bean plants are taking it in stride! Cutworms hit a few of the plants but they recovered and are now covered in beans! Very tough, very productive and very recommended!
