Wouldn’t recommend


Did very poorly. Many didn’t germinate, and the rare few that did never grew taller than a foot and a half. Got maybe 10 beans from 4 plants. Maybe a bad batch.

Great Tasting Beans, Sporadic Germination and Growth


About half of the plant beans had issues with germination, and what did grow had very limited growth. Unsure if my conditions warranted this or not. In zone 6B



I grew these years ago and loved them. This year only about 25% germinated and didn't yield well. I thought it was my new garden spot or cool spring, but perhaps not after reading other reviews.

Stellar flavor!


Stellar flavor and good production. I grew another more productive filet bean and we compared flavor... this one won hands down.

a great bean for Maine conditions


I put these in as a late summer second crop here in Midcoast Maine, (maybe in August?) and they have been fantastic. I just pulled them out today (Oct 5) because they were slowing down and were shading the carrots I seeded under them. Very productive, tasty, tender beans. When I pulled up the first two plants, the roots were loaded with nitrogen-fixing nodules, so I just cut them off at the soil after that, let the bacteria stay in the ground (I had not pre-treated the seeds before planting). The beans dehydrate well, stay a nice green if you use a low setting on the dehydrator. We're eating them for snacks. I plan to plant these again next year.

no good for hot, dry Texas


Germinated poorly and grew even worse for arid West Texas (zone 8). I assume it could not tolerate our heat and moved on to Rattlesnake beans which loved our heat and sun!
