Awesome

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.
