What are the pros? Tons of beans

What are the cons? Very stringy

Review:

We enjoyed the beans straight from the vines at first but as the season went on we couldn't catch them in time (there were tons!). When the beans had more time on the plants they became huge, tough and too stringy even when cooked.

What are the pros? beautiful vines

What are the cons? weren't tasty?

Review:

It's entirely possible that this is completely my fault, but when cooked I found these very furry and chewy. Assuming I can figure out why that was, I will be growing these everywhere because of the beautiful, prolific vines and white flowers.

What are the pros? Tons of beans, delicious, ...

What are the cons? Hard to control vines

Review:

Grows very long vines with big leaves. I primarily used these to create a wall of vines to shade our patio and to eat of course. Vines grew probably 12 feet long. Produced about 45-50 days after putting seed into the ground. Tolerates heat well so far (been getting into the 90s and still producing) and dry spells. Pods grow about average size, stringless, and are pretty tender. They pickle well and are good for sauteeing. The beans are white and delicious as well, tastes similar to pinto. Both pods and beans are great in 3 bean salad. They vine like crazy and want to tangle into each other. I'm convinced these would grow 20 feet tall if they were given the trellis. For the first month so far, 8 plants produce about a pound every week, more than enough for two people plus pickles.

What are the pros? Tasty

What are the cons? I have no dislikes

Review:

This is our many generation family tradition for over a hundred years. We grow the beans until they are filled out and plump. Then we snap em and pull the strings and we boil them with a little salt pork or salty bacon. We boil until they are well cooked. Sometimes we put in some taters. They taste so good. Even better as leftovers warned up again. We grow em to climb long sticks that we make in a tee-pee shape tied up top.

What are the pros? grows fast and high production

What are the cons? got hard to manage

Review:

good beans. grew fast. got hard to manage late in the season, but that may be due to poor planning on my end. Good boiled, saut?ed, and fermented into dilly beans. make sure you have plenty of room for these vines to grow.
