Description

The bush-bean standard. A handsome dark green stringless snap bean that’s been a classic for 50+ years. Plants do not require staking and are resistant to bean mosaic. The bush-type plants set heavy yields of long, straight, flavorful pods that are tender-crisp and suitable for eating raw or steamed. A great choice for freezing or canning. Grows fast enough for two crops/season. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.
