Bush, 55 days. This meaty variety debuted in 1885. It is a flavorful, stringless bean and boasts heavy yields. The pods are medium green in color and a little over 5” long. The seeds are a rich chocolate or coffee brown. D. Landreth Seed Co., one of the oldest surviving American seed houses, proudly proclaimed it as a favorite; “one of the finest pod varieties for the home garden, market garden and canner.

Review:

I've never had luck canning green beans. They always turn out too mushy. Well not Landreth Stringless! I put up 64 quart jars of beans from two seed packets planted. The beans are still firm enough and have a wonderful flavor fresh or from the can. I planted these early, right after our last frost and they survived three hailstorms, tornado winds (our neighbors' house was destroyed about 4 miles from us), and multiple gophers coming and stealing plants from the ground. Plants grew quickly and put out so many beans! Even when I got lazy and didn't pick when needed, the plants stayed true to their name and remained stringless. Couldn't have been more impressed.

Review:

Tried these for the first time last year. Very pleased with the amount of beans they produced. I grew them in 2 plastic 'window box type' planters and they thrived. I did multiple sowings because the beans do stop producing after a month or so of harvest. Had enough beans at once to share and freeze.

Review:

After having grown many bean cultivars for more than a decade, you get to the point where you are sure you've tried them all – vintage, heirloom, and modern; North American and European – and you settle for what seems to be the most appealing. Then you come across a vlog, and hear about a bean that you have never heard of, and is not available in your country. But you can order it from Baker Seeds, and you do. And front the moment you grow it, you know you are onto something special: excellent germination; robust, very thick seedlings; fast growth; early production; and extremely plump and meaty, even before the beans inside have formed. This bean means business. Landreth, and the true homestead Appalachian pole beans I also tried for the first time, will be what I will grow from here on. Because these days, one needs to get the most for the money one spends, the most from the land one has, and the most from time one has available to grow food.

Review:

This just might be my all-time favorite bush bean. They have the old time flavor of the best pole beans only in a bush habit. They germinate quickly with direct sowing and the plants mature unbelievably quick. Landreth plants are very productive with 4-5" beans hanging all over the place. However, the prolific production is wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am because in two weeks they are done. So, next year, I will plant them in two week intervals throughout the summer. The pods were somewhat flattened, like a Kentucky Wonder pole bean, and not like the round beans in the product picture. No big deal. The flavor is outstanding and I will plant these again next year. Oh, don't plant to closely because Landreth loves it's space. In one bale I planted several very closely then thinned them to 4" apart. These didn't do so well. The others were 12" apart and they produced more beans than I could can (despite the attack of Japanese Beetles).
