This was my first time purchasing from territorial seeds and I was not disappointed! All of my bush beans I planted germinated about 15 plants total. They are also producing a great amount of beans. I would highly recommend.

Awesome bush bean!

Grew these last year and will be growing them again this year. Grew them in a 3' by 8' bed and packed them in there tight. Harvested about 40-50 pounds in that little spot. Them produced all the way up to the frost. They where beautiful. Tasted like the green beans I remembered as a kid. They took longer to start creating the seeds in the pods giving me plenty of time to harvest when I needed to. I canned some, sauteed some and eat a lot right in the garden raw. I find these a lot better than the pole bean version.

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.
