What are the pros? Fast to Mature, great taste
What are the cons? None
My new favorite bean! Unlike many colored beans, these retain their distinctive look when cooked. The plants are attractive and the beans were the first to mature among the 5 varieties I planted. The beans also have a nice flavor, which was especially noticeable when tasted after with the Blue Lake bush beans I grew along side them. I noticed the color on the beans that were planted in the shadier part of my garden was less vibrant, but the taste was not effected. We’ve had a rough start to the growing season here- midsummer temperatures and a month long drought during May/June followed by a week of torrential flooding rain- and the plants remained totally unbothered by it.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, beautiful
I planted this beans twice this year, once in the winter and after the last frost when we had a lot of heat waves. I had 11 plants and so many beautiful giant beans almost the size of my face! Beautiful yellow with just amount of purple spots. Taste so good and crunchy harvest straigh from the plant.

What are the pros? Yield and Flavor
What are the cons? nothing
These beans outgrew my hybrid beans. Flavor is great. Taste like an intense version of what you would buy in the store. I went home and wanted to toss out my store bought beans. I grew two of them per 10 inch pot and it worked out just fine. I tried to grow these also in the fall directly in the ground but they rotted. As a result I would recommend them for container growers.

What are the pros? Beautiful & delicious!
Grown in SE Tennessee. Super quick maturity- the first frost was bearing down quickly and I planted late but really really wanted to try them. In fact, I had to cover them one night due to a quick early frost before the real cold set in 3 weeks later. Out of 4 plants from seed to full grown we were able to harvest enough for 3 large meals and froze 2 gallon bags before growing season ended! The plants and pods are so pretty! I've moved and won't have a garden until next year but will be planting them this year amongst my flower beds as edible ornamentals (HOA doesn't allow gardens in the front yard, but these will look gorgeous among the established landscaping). My youngest child loved to help harvest and these are so much easier for little hands to find and pick them other bush beans we've grown previously. And the taste? Amazing! Everyone loved them! These are the only beans I will grow now!

What are the pros? All summer production
What are the cons? don't pick themselves :)
This is the only "edible pod" bean I grow now. I've thrown out my wax beans and green beans. In zone 7a these produce early and all the way through until consistent frosts. The pods do not get nearly as tough on old plants as other green beans do. Old plants produce good beans.
