Prolific and delicious!!

Highly recommend. Could not believe how many beans I harvested last year! Family loved them as well as neighbors and co workers. Planting again this year and trying some other varieties for fun.

great beans

Was very happy with this particular variety of pole bean. I'm located in western Washington, zone 8b. Had them planted in a raised bed and the yield was great! Will be planting this again in my garden.

Love these beans!! All the seeds came up. The green beans are not stringy and taste great! I'm still picking beans (October 23) and there are still some to be picked in a couple days. (I actually saw a couple of blossoms.) Will plant again next year.
