Capitano Bush Bean Seeds



An elegant Romano, bright as sunshine

Days to Maturity: 60 from direct sow

Bush Bean

A delicious, vibrantly colorful, gourmet-quality Romano bean, Capitano must be grown to be appreciated. Once you've tried these succulent golden pods, you won't consider planting the bean garden without them.

The pods are flat, approximately 6 inches long, and very uniform on vigorous, heavy-bearing plants. They color up quite young, adding bright golden-yellow color to the garden, and boast a velvety texture that holds sauces and dressings beautifully.

But the best part is the flavor. Tender and very tasty, these beans are fine enough for your fanciest occasions, and are so delectable you'll find yourself wanting a dish every day. That's okay—these bush-habit plants are very heavy bearing, standing just 20 inches high and covering themselves in straight, even pods all season.

Capitano really sets itself apart from the pack of Romanos, and deserves a place of honor in the vegetable garden. Try it once and we know you'll be convinced.

reliable and delicious

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Since we first tried these beans 4 years ago, this is the only bean we plant. They are consistently productive, flavorful, and tender. Even beans which miss a picking and get fairly large are still stringless and tender. We eat them fresh picked but also can and freeze them.

Love This Bean

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

A friend gave me these seeds and I'm not a big fan of string beans in general. The first year I planted them, had a hard time with germination and crop. The next year, I got it right and planted a lot more seeds than I thought and had an awesome crop. This year, I planted seeds even more liberally and have been harvesting beans all summer long. They are beautiful, low bush, creamy kind of flavor and now I'm freezing my excess. Won't miss planting these each year.

Top drawer!

Very nice flavor and velvety texture, just delightful. Just had our third picking here in South Florida, and expect two more. We will plant this one every season from now on.

Productive, beautiful and tasty

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Beans are my second favorite garden veggie, and I love the flavor of Capitano! I planted Capitano in late June and harvested plenty of beans. The plants grew well during a rainy season and responded well to neem oil as a treatment for Mexican bean beetles.

very productive

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This is the hardiest and most productive bean I have ever grown. It produces almost non-stop until frost if you keep it picked. Also, delicious fresh or frozen.
