Bush, 55 days. Here’s another beautiful selection from the late Robert Lobitz, the Minnesota bean man. This is the most uniquely-colored bean we have seen, nearly a true red shade on the thick, flavorful pods. Lovely pink flower, too! A wonderful variety that is so pleasing to the senses and yields well.

What are the pros? Every seed germinated, first

What are the cons? Didn’t last, deer liked it

Review:

All the seeds germinated, and this was the first beans to produce. However, the deer liked them and ate several of the plants(didn’t have that problem with the rest of my beans). They also got old very quickly

Tasty but tough
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? Tough pods

Review:

These beans taste great but they take much longer to cook compared to Blue Lake or Kentucky Wonder. Took over an hour boiling to get them tender enough to eat. These were 3-6 inch long pods. I would recommend them but with the caveat about cooking time.

What are the pros? Beautiful, xlnt flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

The wide-spreading bush plants are beautiful, and the delicate flowers, some pink and and many biicolor pink and white, make a beautiful border in our edible gardens. Extremely productive, easy to pick due to the deep-rose colored pods. My family are all greasy-bean snobs way back, and we have been lucky to have a connection with many well-known heirloom bean collectors for many years, so when I say this is a new family favorite, it's high praise for us. The beans have similar flavor to greasies and cutshorts, with good nutty overtones. The stringless pods have a wonderful texture, and beans cooked Appalachian style don't have the tendency to shatter that many if our favorites exhibit. Steamed, Red Swan has a beautiful deep green color, and is also excellent as a cold crudite and superb for dilled beans due to the tender but firm, thick pod. Doesn't make a good filet, and a bit slower to germinate than some others, but near 100% even so.

Review:

I LOVE this bean. It was a heavy producer, and the plants stood up for easy picking. I put them out early before the Japanese beetles got going. I will grow way more of these next year!

Review:

I grew three types of beans this year from Baker's Creek. WOW is all I can say about this bean. It was without a doubt the best in terms of yields and appearance. Their color makes them easy to find. They definitely are more of a magenta color for me with subtle green here and there. They do turn green when cooked which is fine. I planted these beans sometime in June. When they flowered, they were COVERED with blooms and they all turned into little beans. They grew quickly and perfectly (nice slender, symmetrical shape). We used almost all of them to make fermented beans (they taste like pickles). Just when I thought they were done, each plant sent out additional stalks like a foot long COVERED with more flowers. It has been weeks with no signs of slowing down!!! LOVE THESE. I have made so many quarts of fermented beans and cukes and my family is very happy. Might be the only bean I plant from now on!! Do yourself a favor and give these a try...you won't regret it.
