Positive Farmerdill On Oct 27, 2003, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Bountiful is an oldtimer that is still one of the earliest snap beans. The light green, 7 inch, flat pods hold up well when picked. Good flavor, but major strenghts are yield and earliness.

It is believed this bean got the name when Peter Henderson& Company had a contest for the name. A man from Ontario won $25.00 for naming it. It was previously called Green Bush Bean# 1. Has 6-7 inchs pods.
