best Bush Beans I have found

I have been looking for a bean that isn't stringy or tough. This year I planted the Hickok among my corn and both thrived. The beans I canned from the Hickok are exactly what I have been looking for and will be my Bean of choice from now on.

Best beans ever!

Planted in 20 gallon grow bags, tons of beautiful dark green beans. So tender, completely stringless, and delicious. Total of only about 15 plants and I'm getting a pound of beans every day. First time growing this variety so I only planted a small amount but next season this is the only one I'll plant


I planted these in fabric pots and they have done great. The plants stay small and put out a lot of beans. I even had enough to freeze some for winter. They also are the best tasting beans and very tender. I will buy agian.
