A tough but tender bean
Jeff from MI wrote on February 11, 2020

These poor beans had a lot going against them, a cool, excessively wet spring, poor waterlogged soil in my new garden space, and worst of all, a newbie bean farmer. They needed a second sowing to fill in some gaps because only about 1/2 germinated in the initial run, but by that point in the summer, the weather had evened out. The ones from the first planting and (later) the second took off and produced like mad after they matured.. Even with a small row I was able to get some nice tasty beans through the rest of summer.

Still the Best

Planted these later in the season (July 1), but they performed like champs. Germination was good, roughly 90%, and fast, within 7 days. Vigorous growth, with first bloom on 8/22. Withstood super hot summer (100+), and plants are bearing heavily. Freezing the excess, and sharing only with our favorite neighbors. ;-)
