Has The Best green bean flavor of them all!
I've grown this off and on over the years and it's a wonderful, prolific bean in my Zone 5 garden. Grew it up cornstalks ala 3-Sisters last year and had plenty to pick fresh and enough left for seed to make soup. Mine had minimal strings when picked young (full size) but barely filled out. Has The Best green bean flavor of them all!
