Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Suze_ On Nov 10, 2007, Suze_ from (Zone 7b) wrote:

Very good flavor, extremely tender if not allowed to get too long or wide before picking. As with most bush beans (especially the green filet types), can sometimes be hard to spot, you have to look through the plants carefully to find them all. Stringless.

Similar in taste/size/shape/bloom color to 'Tavera', another green bush/filet bean I also grew this year.

Neutral Farmerdill On Sep 13, 2004, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Slender, crunchy pods have a distinct, rich flavor. Bears very early and very heavily. Harvest often while young, from 3" up to 6" long. (48 day)
