A very sweet, tender and prolific green bean. If you keep on picking them, they keep on coming! Did very well for me here in KY in spite of a drought. 6-7 inch long, rather plump snap beans. Delicious!

These beans were found by Bill Best of Sustainable Mountain Agriculture Center, Inc of Berea, KY, growing as a mutant in a patch of White Greasy Cut-Short Beans.
