Outstanding bush bean. Excellent germination, fast maturity, very tasty!
by Jamaica Beach TX Gardener
At the last minute I decided to grow my own green beans for Thanksgiving. This was the best option available with the shortest maturity time. Planted on 9/27 and started harvesting on 11/18 - 54 days later. Picked enough for Thanksgiving, though I decided to pickle them instead. I expect to get at least one more nice harvest, if not two.
Beans struggle here with high winds, rust, fungus, etc. I had excellent germination, and the plants grew very well in zone 9B on the Texas Gulf Coast. This fall planting worked out much better than my summer beans, and the beans are delicious and stringless. Highly recommended.
