These beans have been absolutely prolific, every bean sprouted and we've harvested 5 bushel off them so far and we've got another bushel still on the vine. This is from 6 rows of 15', also the beans taste excellent, better than blue lake in our opinion.
Very prolific bean and the lack of stringing them is excellent. On six rows 17 feet long we harvested a whole bushel, we've got 3x as many not ready yet and flowers galore! Here's to 50 quarts this season!
