Pole, 95 days. This is the bean that is said to have come to America with the Pilgrims in 1620. This old cutshort green bean has great flavor and the red/white beans are quite tasty. A long-time staple in the Carolinas.

What are the pros? Resilient, good producer

What are the cons? Late, harder to shell

Review:

This wasn't the first to grow or produce by any means - it lagged behind both Kentucky Wonder and Rattlesnake - but when those two fell to disease and critters, somehow this one kept going and did well. I planted densely in a raised bed and they didn't seem to mind. Now that the weather has grown a bit cooler they aren't filling out the pods so well or fast, and the downturn in production has been sharp, almost like a determinate. It's a bit of a pain to extract the fresh shellies, and I don't much like running the risk in NE of a too-late producer so I'll probably try another variety next year.

What are the pros? Beautiful seed

What are the cons? Vulnerable to pests, slow

Review:

My planting of 50 beans resulted in slow growing plants and then those that grew were devasted by Japanese Beetles. (It has been a bad year for them in New York. These were grown in the lower Catskills). The other pole beans I grew did fine. Of the very few I harvested, they were tasty. They had a edamame flavor to them.
