This pole snap bean boasts excellent flavor and texture and remains crunchy and juicy for an extended period of time. Early- to mid-season maturing plants are strong climbers and producers; seeds have good flavor and texture as a dry bean too. This variety was donated to Seed Savers Exchange in 2014 by Paris Fortner of Erie, Michigan, who received its seeds in the 1990s from the daughter of Dallas Edwards (the Tennessee woman for whom the variety is named).
