The perfect green bean


Totally recommend! Productive and beautiful green bean. Grew with no pest issues, and kept producing even during a slight drought

Amazingly productive beans!


They kept right on producing until we had a heavy frost.

Great Producer, Vigorous!


Very Prolific. Long vines and big bean pods. Tender when young, tougher and more fibrous when older. Super filling, great in sir fry or on it's own. I'll plant this again next year.
