This is a real oldtime bush stringbean. Flavor is unsrpassed for southern traditional style beans. ( Simmered slowly in a cast iron kettle with sidemeat on the back of a wood stove. Add new potatoes just before beans are done) They do not fare as well with more modern styles of preparation nor do they freeze or can as well as newer varieties. Semi-flat pods will become fibrous if left too long on the bush.
