Awsome
Reviewed By: Harry Smith (NORTHERN CAMBRIA, PA)
I planted these in containers and I am more than pleased. They produced wonderfully until it became in the 80's in the day and high 60's to 70's in the night in the day time. I left them alone and just watered them as frequently as always and they started to produce again when it dropped down to the 50's at night. I already ordered more for next year. They may not be as productive as the first round but mixed with my green pole beans they are absolutely beautiful in the canning jars!

The perfect bean
Reviewed By: Barbara (Dunlap, TN)
Really impressed with this bean. Stringless, long-producing--7 weeks & still going (rainy year). Very prolific: 11 lbs out of 4x4 plot so far. I plan on planting this every year.

Best Bean Ever
Reviewed By: Elita Lepley (Bellevue, Ohio)
After planting several types of bean seeds, I always come back to these. Have planted these for the last 3 years. A heavy producer of great tasting stringless beans that freeze well. My family likes these the best.

Gorgeous!
Reviewed By: Pete (Boulder Junction, WI)
Never used to be a wax bean fan, but these are tops. Great look in the garden with huge yields of butter-yellow pods amid bright green foliage. Prolific; we get several pickings over a 2 - 3 week period.

Buttery
Reviewed By: Steve (Methuen, MA)
Beans are wonderful buttery taste, resist scab from wet leaves and with good compost average 20+ beans per bush. Cover in maturity to prevent critter chewing!
