I grew the bush version. It produces very pretty pods with tasty shelly beans.

I have grown this bean since the 60's (pole variety). It should be noted this bean is available in both the bush and pole variety. My seed have been handed down in my family for generations, it's my favorite shell bean. Easy to grow on 6' to 8' poles, very prolific.
