Fabulous flavor and "bomb-proof" - you have to try pretty hard to NOT grow this variety. I have been saving these seeds for years and they keep going strong. Great flavor young or a little over ripe. Huge producer, I have trouble keeping the trellis upright they get so heavy with fruit. Every year a get a few albinos, which is interesting. They die young obviously, but it's kind of neat.

From your friends at Botanical Interests: This Italian green bean is considered by many to be the best tasting bean available. It has an UNSURPASSED beany/nutty flavor and produces over a long period of time. As a pole bean, it is easy to grow it vertically in small spaces by letting it climb up a pole, trellis, or teepee made of poles (which is a great tent for kids or a cool spot to grow lettuce!).

A 60 day Italian pole bean that is widely available. Pods are flat 5 - inches in lenght. A good producer. Under my conditions was more prolific than Kentucky Wonder, Favor is different but equally good in its own right.
