This is a dwarf french bean with fleshy wide flat pods that are stringless.Very good flavour and texture, it is bred from a mix of Romano, Admires and Latina, having a better crop and disease resistance than these. Eat fresh or freeze. The plant holds its pods up well making them easy to gather. It has white seeds.
