My husband picked these up, and I thought they would be a flop, to my surprise I loved growing them. They went up 8ft poles and over by many feet. The beans were good before the seeds developed and after a little stringy. Easy to slice to freeze and froze well. By the dry fall they were less flavorful. Im going to try them again as last year was atypical for ohio.
