Bobis a Grano Nero is a really delicious, completely stringless green bean. Here in the Deep South, it quits producing in the hottest part of summer (end of June through August, for me on the coast). When the temps are cool enough, it's a prolific producer of extremely tasty beans. I purchased my seeds from Seeds From Italy. http://www.growitalian.com
