Positive Farmerdill On Nov 13, 2011, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Purple 5-6 inch round slender pods on a medium bush vine. Tends to stretch harvest over a period of weeks, much like the old Contender which was touted as an everbearer. I prefer a bush bean that gives a heavy crop on the first harvest, rather than dribbliing along over an extended period. Nice bean with good flavor.
