Neutral Farmerdill On Apr 16, 2005, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

From Bakker Brothers, who offer this description; "Small sieve wax bean for processing and fresh market. Can be used both as a whole bean or snapped. Very productive and well adapted to mechanical harvest. The pods are medium yellow, approximately 12-13 cm long, 9 mm wide. Straight, round and stringless. Harvest in about 55 days. The plant has an erect, compact bush habit with medium-dark green, fairly small leaves. The flowers are situated rather high. Processors, market growers and home gardeners are equally fond of this variety. Resistant to Anthracnose and Bean Common Mosaic Virus."
