best bean for hot dry weather
In the summer of 2012, Indiana experienced drought conditions and record high temperatures. This bean was the only one that produced well in my garden, even during the hottest weather. The beans are beautiful, tender and full of flavor. They will always have a place in my garden!
Tastiest Pole Beans Ever
I have grown many types of green beans, but these have the best flavor by far.
