Best bean of all!


I've grown many different varieties of beans but this is the absolutely best one of all! They are crisp and juicy with an outstanding sweet bean flavor. The crispness stays after blanching to freeze. You will be amazed at how good the frozen ones are in midwinter. If I could only grow one bean, this would be it - no hesitation.

Great flavor and unique color


Thus bean is delicious. It was also very easy to grow with no pest issues.

Favorite bush bean, unique


My favorite bush bean, they are large flat wax beans with purple striping. They are crisp with a high moisture content like the description states. Not like a romano, not like a bush wax or common green bean either. Pretty unique, and attractive, and most people should like them even though they are different. The bush plants can get sloppy but can be productive up to frost.

Favorite beans!


We love these beans! They are super productive, fun to look at and my kids go nuts for them. I usually have to sneak mine in the garden before bringing them in or I don't get to enjoy any!

Great container bean


I got these for the novelty, but will now grow them every year for the quality of the beans. I don't have a garden, so they were grown in a large pot in part shade and I STILL got good yields of large, flavorful beans for the whole season, they didn't stop until they froze.

In the Family for Generations


My Husband's Grandparents grew and saved this bean exclusively for thier entire lives. Their Parents grew and saved it before them. Now we grow & save it. They are delicious fresh, cooked, frozen, canned & dry. It's the most versatile bean I know. Saves beautifully as well. Lovely buttery flavor & the plants are hearty & grow very well even under stress.
