Emerite is the thinnest filet pole bean I have found. Excess beans perform well by blanching/freezing. Thicker bean varieties prefer to be canned, which is more work and the end result is less crisp. See also my comment about Compass bush bean.

The advantage of Emerite is that you can grow a lot of them on towers, which saves space.

Planted for the first time last year and they didn’t disappoint. Tried to keep up picking and a few got a little longer than I wanted but they were still tender. I planted two 40’ rows this year.

Tastiest, most tender beans I've grown

These beans were amazing. 100% tender, so tasty, and grew like crazy. I inherited an abandoned community garden plot mid-summer. Pulled the weeds in a week, and put these beans in. I could not have asked for better results!

Great Flavor

I had a hard time starting these, ended up planting in pots and transferred the first 30. The second 30 only 2 germinated and grew. They are just now coming on strong and the flavor is excellent.

Rich and flavorful beans are fiber-packed veggies that promote digestive health and are excellent sources of antioxidants that scavenge free radicals in the body. They are also nitrogen-fixing legumes; beans gather nitrogen from the air and load it into the soil to feed future crops.
