Nice!

by

These beans are lovely in every way. I grew them two ways, with trellis next to cucumbers and three-sisters style. They were too agressive to grow near cucumbers. They were a perfect match with gem corn. I actually saved all the beans for seed. If I have some left I'll eat them.

Delicious and easy to grow

by

Loved this dried bean. Grew very well and prolifically in my NH garden. When cooked these beans have a delicious creamy texture and nutty flavor, definitely in my top 3!

Very Prolific in Southern Minnesota

It won't let me give it 5 stars but I do give it 5 stars. I have been growing this bean in cattle panel trellises for 3 years now. They are so prolific and beautiful. They can so nicely and is all I use for chili. I give many away.
