From Seminis, which offers this description: "Ulysses is a second-early large sieve snap bean capable of delivering abundant amounts of high quality pods. Early maturity and uniform pod shape and color as well as intermediate resistance to bacterial brown spot are all positive attributes that make Ulysses a solid performer. The processed product of Ulysses has been excellent, allowing processors the luxury of not having to sacrifice quality for earliness when selecting a variety. "
