Very Tasty and pretty
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0

What are the pros? Productive, Kept color cooked

What are the cons? Not a bush variety


Started seeds in early April, they started producing in early July and kept on producing until the first frost in December! I planted this without support in my front yard flower bed, but it grew all over lol. However it is a pretty plant so it was ok that they grew up the neighboring pineapple guava. Three cheers for edible landscaping! We planted 6 plants and they yielded 2.5 lbs of beans, more than any other bean variety we grew! They tasted great and kept most of their color when cooked!!! How thrilling!! The color faded a little, but the variegation was still strong; especially compared to the pretty Dragon's Tongue bean that fades completely with cooking. These were very tasty, raw or cooked. Our 1 year old would steal freshly picked from the table and eat them raw haha. So silly! We will definitely be growing them every year!
