Best Bean Ever!
Steve from IA wrote on September 16, 2019

I have grown Algarve every year since finding it at Park Seed about 8 years ago. I try a different variety along with Algarve each year, but none has equalled in taste, earliness, yield, and over-all quality. The larger ones, I slice, or French, and stay completely stringless. They yield until frost, if kept picked, through the season. My all time favorite green bean!

Pick them early for best flavor

These are awesome beans. Quick to produce vs. other string beans. They taste best if picked when they are 1/2" to 3/4" wide and 8" to 10" long. The 1"x 12" and larger beans are not as tasty. Search for Green Beans Gremolata recipes. Best if blanched 4 minutes in salted water before frying. This is the second year I have grown these beans. I will plant them again next year.

What a surprise!

Ordered and planted these on a whim in 2015. A 12ft row supplied me and two neighbors with beans all summer. I also froze 5 gallons for winter eating. They were the best tasting I have eaten in ages and 100% stringless. Just wonderful. Tried to grow them last year but weather didn't cooperate. Almost all of my summer garden failed because of cold wet weather. This year they are on my list of must haves (weather permitting).

A gardener for over 30 years, I bought this to try something new. I now have the best tasting, largest, most tender beans I have ever had. A good producer so far, have only about 15 plants, have picked two 5-gallon buckets about half full, with many, many more still very small and the plants still flowering. I would say not quite as many beans, but they are much larger than your average bean. I do not have to give them away; neighbors are coming over to ??help me pick them?g. I am going to try other similar beans next year; this one just blew me away.

Algarve pole beans

Their rep recommended Algarve beans as a substitute for the unavailable Early Riser pole beans that I like. The Algarve beans are as sweet, tender, tasty, prolific and early as the Early Risers. Thanks for the recommendation.
