What are the pros? Gives TONS of dry beans
What are the cons? Takes awhile to fully mature
This bean is magic! Trust me! I planted one packet and got TONS of dry beans in return. I actually forgot this was a pole bean and so planted them without support, scratching my head when they kept getting taller and taller and sent out vines for climbing. Had to remedy the situation by shoving a few 7' tomato cages down the row. They climbed on without a problem and grew past the top. They took awhile to load up with actual beans and then more time to fully mature into dry beans (to be expected). But the wait was worth it! Unfortunately one of the tomato cages blew over during a windy night and pulled out about a third of my row... but the remaining gave me 5 quart jars of dry beans!!! We've eaten them a few times and they are delicious and creamy, absolutely delicious in a soup! The vines were still maturing beans through January!!! Just pulled them out, and we've had several frosts. NUTS! I had enough beans to save for this coming season and I'm so excited to do it all over again!
