Review:

What a wonderful performing variety this is! I decided to give a bush type a try this year and I think I’ll be growing contenders from now on. This variety seems much more resilient than other kinds I’ve tried in the past.

What are the pros? Everything

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew these beans as my new ones introduced last spring. I was not dissatisfied at all. Great germination rate, heavy producers, will grow large pods without losing much flavor. The only con I would say is they die off around mid July.

What are the pros? productive

What are the cons? deer love them

Review:

These plants did very well especially since the deer eat the leaves off them every few days. The plants still gave us lots of beans. Great variety, I will definitely grow them again.

What are the pros? flavor and size

What are the cons? short season

Review:

This is an easy bean to grow especially for first timers. Don't get over 2 foot tall so no staking required. I use small tomatoe cages to keep them off the ground. The beans tend to get huge but still have a great flavor. The only thing I didn't like is they stop producing after the first beans were picked. I don't know if that is normal with this bean. I've grown other green beans and they always produced more. I recommend Cantare green beans. They are definitely worth growing.
