reliable and delicious

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

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.

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

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 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.
