Incredible flavor but low yields


We loved the flavor, color, and size of these beans, but the germination rates were pretty low, as well as the yield per plant. I'm going to try again this season in case it was a soil or nutrient issue, and not the genetics of the plant.

Love ‘em!


Excellent flavor and yields. Very happy with this selection.

Gorgeous but low-yielding


I loved the 12 (twelve) beans I got from 15 plants I tended. Other beans did not have such issues in similar growing conditions. So sad, because they're gorgeous!
