Grew this bean last year and had good results. Germinates reliably, grows quickly, and produces a lot of beans. I haven't tried the beans dried, but as snap/string beans, they are tasty, better than any green beans you can get in the grocery. Vines also did well through an infestation of mold. Overall, seems reliable and hardy.
