An easy-to-pick variety that holds pods off the soil, this stringless bush bean, also called snap or bunch beans, sets pea-shaped buds that blossom into small "perfect" flowers followed by straight, smooth medium-green pods. This seed vegetable is also known as a legume.

This herbaceous tender annual is a mid-season determinate variety, growing in a low, self-supporting bush that stands erect and has a nice structure, suitable for containers. The large plant grows vigorously and produces a good yield that holds well, ensuring a large, one-time crop. For a continual, season-long harvest, succession plant every two weeks until mid-August.

Easy to grow and trouble free, even for the new gardener, this shallow-rooted plant prefers a sunny location with moist, fertile, organically rich, well-drained loams but performs well in low fertility soils and has proven consistent performance over various locations and growing conditions. It has a high resistance to bean common mosaic virus (BCMV) and an intermediate resistance to Aphanomyces root and hypocotyl rot rust (Pss). Self-pollinating, it will bear fruit without any pollen from other varieties.

A warm-season vegetable, sensitive to cold temperatures and frost, it should be direct sown into warm spring soil after all danger of frost has passed. Protect plants if temperatures are expected to dip below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Mulching helps to moderate soil temperature and to maintain soil moisture. Row covers offer added protection from heavy frost.
