Ratings & Reviews
Excellent Pole Bean
by Christopher F.
I've been growing these for several years now in central NC. Except for one year when I lost the battle with the rabbits, these have been steadfastly reliable and provided good quality beans.
As a novice gardener I planted late in the season, and in rows as if they were a bush bean. Plants found a way to make it to the nearby chicken wire and produce in spite of my mistakes.
Beautiful, prolific beans!
Love these beautiful, prolific beans! I am picking buckets full daily. Excellent flavor even the ones that get to 8" long.
