This a white seeded snap bean. Its biggest claim to fame is that it was one of the early top setting snap beans and conducive to mechanical picking. It is a good snap bean but nothing out of the ordinary. It grows and produces well, but falls short of Top Crop for production and many others for appearance and flavor.

I have grown these for years. They have 6 inch beans that are string-less, which if you are doing much canning makes a big difference.Have a good flavor and are easy to pick. The heat doesn't seem to bother them but if it stays dry too long they will not yield as well.
