Prolific!

Cannot believe the amount of beans these plants produced! Pest resistant and easy to grow. Beans had great flavor and texture. Wonderful steamed fresh as well as canned.

Great Producer!

We were swimming in these beans by the end of the gardening season! Once they started producing, they never stopped. Plenty of beautiful, great-tasting beans for fresh eating, and LOTS for freezing as well. They taste great frozen as well. Love these beans! They outproduced my rows of Blue Lake Bush beans by quite a bit. Not the straightest bean, so if canning is your #1 priority, these may not be your top choice.
