Awesome Beans
Melissa Jenkins from MI wrote on January 23, 2022

Wow, are these beans good! I ordered them last year just because the variety I wanted wasn't available. Happy accident, because they produced like crazy and were absolutely delectable! My twelve-year-old son inhaled them for weeks on end. Plus they took a long time to get seedy, when meant when I was a little late going out to pick them, they were still in very good shape. They grew enormously long and I put them in a lot of recipes! BTW, I almost never write reviews as I am pretty busy, but this one was worth the time!

These beans were excellent and a good producer. It took a while for them to start blooming in the Pacific Northwest, but once they started to produce beans, the plants did so until after the first frost. Excellent flavor as well.

Best Bean Ever!

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).
