Hats off to Derby
Reviewed By: Hats off to Derby (Jane Arnold, Poplar Bluff)
I have grown Derby for 4 years and been very pleased every year, regardless of the weather, hot & dry or too wet. Very nice shaped, tender, stringless beans for a long growing season with no viruses.

Best Bush Bean Ever
Reviewed By: Dave Harris (Plain City, OH)
I've been growing bush beans in Central Ohio for over 40 years. I have never found any to compare to the Derby Bean. They produce all summer long and they stay tender and flavorful way past the time other beans have grown stringy and starchy. They are also very productive and seem to be rust resistant in this area. This is a real winner.

Kids won't eat anything else
Reviewed By: Rose (Pflugerville, Texas)
My kids love these green beans so much that they don't want to eat the beans from the store. These are the best tasting green beans and they grow like weeds.

Awesome producers!
Reviewed By: Susan (Jefferson, AR)
I was amazed with how fast these beans grew and started growing beans! I have been harvesting beans from three plants for about two weeks now, and the other three seeds I planted a little later to stagger the harvest are now ramping up production. They have no strings (yay!) and are crisp and tasty.

The best beans ever!
Reviewed By: Kelsey (Mineral Point, WI)
These are the best beans ever. We planted one package last summer and we had more beans than we knew what to do with. We gave tons away to our friends and family. We had beans for dinner 3 times a week from July until September, then we ate the beans that we froze until November.
